In this senior project capstone course, students will apply modeling techniques and visualization tools to a large project and explore the related social and ethical considerations. Students will select problems from domain areas, collect and manage data related to their problems, apply appropriate modeling techniques, use visualization tools to extract new knowledge and insights from their data, and give presentations on their discoveries. Students will use free and commercial visualization tools, and learn about their tradeoffs. The course will also explore social, ethical, legal, and professional issues that arise in collecting, storing and analysing data, using case studies and discussions informed by a reformed, Christian perspective.
