What can ITA do for researchers?

The program will connect you with students and faculty in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering to help with computing-related tasks in your research effort. Whether it is improving communication with your colleagues via the development of a webpage, provide a unique interaction to your department through a smartphone mobile application, or the design and implementation of new algorithms that provide greater insight into data you are attempting to analyze, a CSE student (possibly with oversight by a departmental faculty member) can help address your needs.

How much does it cost to work with ITA on a project?

It depends on the estimated time and complexity to complete the project. Hourly rates or a flat fee are available.
