The Honors Degree recognizes a student's excellent performance in Honors coursework in and outside the primary major. The Honors Degree is available to Computer Science majors (BA or BS) and to Information Systems majors (BS). Specific requirements are outlined in the University catalog at requirements for the Honors Degree.
Degree with Distinction
The Degree with Distinction supplements regular departmental degree requirements by giving the student significant research experience while still an undergraduate. The Degree with Distinction is available to Computer Science majors (BA or BS) and to Information Systems majors (BS). The candidate for a Degree with Distinction must complete six credits of thesis or project and give an oral presentation and defense of the thesis or project to a faculty committee. The Degree with Distinction entails no change in the regular requirements of a student's program other than research, writing, and defense of a senior thesis. Specific requirements are outlined in the University catalog at requirements for the Degree with Distinction.
Honors Degree with Distinction
The Honors Degree with Distinction recognizes a student's completion of the research requirements for the Degree with Distinction in addition to the successful pursuit of Honors coursework throughout the degree program. Six credits of Honors thesis may be counted as part of the 30 Honors credits required for the Honors Degree. Specific requirements are outlined in the University catalog at requirements for the Honors Degree with Distinction.

The project, "Secure Database-Driven Dynamic Spectrum Sharing," addresses issues of security and privacy surroundingradio spectrum sharing. The five-year, $500,000 grant was awarded through NSF's Division of Computer and Network Systems.
Soil moisture is critical to plant growth and thus food security. Rodrigo Vargas Ramos, assistant professor of plant and soil sciences, using a combination of mathematical models and HPC techniques, will create a global map of soil moisture representing every day from 1980 to 2015. His collaborator and mentor is Michela Taufer, David and Beverly C. Mills Career Development Chair of Computer and Information Sciences.
Established in 1988, the annual SC conference has grown in size and impact. Approximately 5,000 people participate in the technical program, with about 11,000 people overall. "This is a well-deserved honor for Prof. Taufer and marks heras one of a few recognized leaders in the field of HPC," says CIS chair Kathy McCoy.
