LA County has harnessed California State University, Los Angeles’ (CSU LA) computer engineering senior project program to complete two projects in a test run for a long-term effort. The pilot was approved by the Board of Supervisors on Oct. 17.

The senior project program costs about $20,000 per project, which the partnering entity pays to the university.

The current projects include a “smart board” project in the Hall of Administration, which could harness narrow-AI technology, and a vehicle tracking program for the Department of Parks and Recreation.

Each of these projects includes six students and two advisers.

“The project lasts a full academic year and gives students experience in applying their course knowledge to real-life design challenges and managing a project from start to finish,” Emily Allen, dean for the College of Engineering, Computer Science and Technology at CSU LA, wrote to Techwire.
