Event: UW iSchool Capstone

The UW Information School will be holding our annual Capstone event, showcasing the work of graduating Informatics, MSIM and MLIS students.

Where are the next great ideas in the information field coming from?  This year’s Capstone event may provide some answers. Capstone projects from the iSchool’s Bachelor of Science in Informatics, Master of Science in Information Management and Master of Library & Information Science programs are concrete examples of what it means to design and build novel applications of technology and innovative information tools and services. Capstone students provide solutions to information problems that people and organizations face every day, with projects ranging from mobile device applications to web-based library collection tools to browser security plug-ins.

All are welcome to attend – industry professionals and employers; UW and iSchool alumni, students, faculty and prospective students; and family and friends of the presenting students.  Guests are asked to RSVP for the Capstone Event at http://bit.ly/capstone12.

Project: Tracking Down the Port of Seattle’s Trucks

The Environmental Management Graduate Certificate Program is currently seeking graduate students to work on a Keystone Project sponsored by the Program on the Environment and the Port of Seattle to span the 2010-2011 Fall and Winter quarters. This is a wonderful opportunity for students interested in sustainability, engineering, urban planning or transportation planning. 

2010-2011 Keystone Project
Environmental Management Graduate Certificate Program
Tracking Down the Port of Seattle’s Trucks

Approximately two thirds of the freight that moves through the Port of Seattle each day does so via truck. As trucks wait in line at gates and roadways they emit greenhouse gases and particulate matter which contributes to local air pollution. The University of Washington and the Port of Seattle are hosting a two-quarter long Keystone Project during the 2010-2011 Fall and Winter quarters to determine what steps can be taken to minimize the impact of these trucks and better understand the trucks’ travel patterns.

Using GPS data captured from individual truck’s travel routings, as well other data sources including surveys, a team of students will evaluate the data to locate areas of inefficient operations, such as long waits in queues, quantify bottlenecks, and identify regional travel patterns. Under the guidance of Professor Ed McCormack (Civil and Environmental Engineering) this team of students will use GIS software and other analytical tools to evaluate truck data, gain experience, and learn about freight transportation planning at the local and regional levels.

Keystone Projects are designed for students in the Environmental Management certificate program, however students can participate in Keystone Projects for independent study credits. Please send all questions and inquiries to envirmgt@u… Students in Public Policy, Engineering, Urban Planning, Geography, etc should be sure to take advantage of this incredible opportunity!
