Student & Faculty IT Research (external links)

UNCW encourages students to engage in academic research. The research activities provide an opportunity for students to deeply explore topics and to expand their knowledge beyond the classroom. We believe students can bring important insights to their academic discipline because of their unique perspective. Below are some recent examples of academic publications by our students and faculty.
