Abstract

This project is about how we created a website for students in the Computer Science Department at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. For this project, we gathered information about the process of finding a Major Qualifying Project. We researched how to develop a system that would allow students to interact to find and form project groups. We then constructed a system using PHP, CodeIgniter, MySQL, Javascript, HTML, and CSS. We set up our project to work with the Central Authentication Service that WPI provides, in order to allow users to login. We conducted user tests and a heuristic evaluation in order to analyze and improve our project. We made our project available to the members of the Computer Science Department so that it could be used to coordinate groups for projects.
