From Leadership – Dean Chung
Wow, this week is the final week of this winter quarter – the 10th week! I want to share my special thanks with you. Without you, STC cannot make its programs strong, sustainable, and smart – which I call 3S.
I am blessed to work with you.
CityU Provost Grants to Promote Faculty Scholarship
To support scholarship and innovation that benefits the University’s programs and students and aligns with institutional research goals, the Provost’s Office provides grants to support faculty scholarship during the 2020 – 2021 academic year (July 1 – June 30). Dr. Sam Chung (Principal Investigator, Professor), was awarded the grant for his research in “Best Practices for Reengineering Legacy Software Systems to Cloud-based, Secure, and Smart Target Software Systems” to support his research group – Smart & Secure Computing.
This CityU Provost grant will be used to purchase licenses of Computer-Aided Software Engineering (CASE) tools and Amazon Web Services (AWS) services for three MSCS students who will take their capstone projects in Spring 2021. The results may support nonprofit organizations’ IT reengineering through their Service Learning. According to Wikipedia, service-learning is “an educational approach that combines learning objectives with community service in order to provide a pragmatic, progressive learning experience while meeting societal needs.”
STC holds the STC Applied Research Symposium (ARS) each quarter on Thursday during the last week of classes (10th week). STC ARS invites qualified students currently enrolled in the capstone project course to present their work.
When: March 18, 2021 (Thu). 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Visit symbolics.com for interesting history and lots of fun FAQs, such as “How many registered domain names are there?” Answer: 366,3000,000 registered domain names across all TLDs (top-level domains).
