DIMAP Applications Still Open
The Distinction in the Major Program (DIMAP) is a high honor in recognition of the academic scholastic achievement of students for working on projects outside of and beyond the CS major degree requirements. The goal of the program is to encourage students to apply the knowledge and skills they have obtained in the major to a challenging research or technological problem. Students admitted to the program work under the supervision of a faculty advisor on a senior project via the Capstone Track or on a research project via the Research Track. These unique experiences help students extend their knowledge in a particular area and acquire the skills necessary to plan, manage, and implement a large project or open-ended research problem. At the end of the program, students present their results to their peers and faculty. Students who earn Distinction in the Major will receive a seal on their UCSB diploma in recognition of these achievements and officially setting them apart from their peers. The students are also recognized at the CS Dept Awards Ceremony at the end of the Spring quarter.
