Center for Innovation and Research in Computing
The goal of the Center for Innovation and Research in Computing (CIRC) is to enhance student learning in the School of Computing by engaging students in real-world development projects. By paying students to work on these projects, CIRC will provide students with the opportunity to fund their education through on-campus, computing-related work (similar in nature to computing internships).
CIRC works with various industry and community partners as well as with Southern Adventist University on programming projects of various sizes. A wide range of technologies are used for development, including Android, iOS, PHP, C#.NET, and C++. Typically, CIRC works on specialized projects that don't fit neatly inside one of the many generalized software solutions that are available on the market today.
CIRC is guided by the following objectives:
- Stimulate creativity and innovation through extracurricular projects
- Enrich students’ educational experience
- Collaborate with industry and community partners
- Support faculty research
- Enhance faculty-student interaction
- Provide student employment within the computing discipline
Here are a few of the clients that CIRC has worked with in the past:
- Bake Crafters
- Collegedale Academy
- Department of Education of the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists
- Loma Linda Veteran's Association
- Pacific Press Publishing Association
- Southern Adventist University
- And more!
