    Green Lights and Graduate School:  a Two-Part Talk

    Brian Bennett, East TN State University

    Phil Pfeiffer, East TN State University

    In Spring 2018, students in ETSU's M.S. program, as part of a TN Dept. of Transportation-supported grant, began work on an Android application for advising drivers on how to get through signaled intersections on green.  The various challenges involved in providing  timely and sound advice on (legal) driving speeds, relative to multiple, disparate, and potentially unreliable data sources, will be covered in the first half of this talk.  The balance will then focus on concerns related to pursuing graduate education in computing:  i.e., opportunities for employment with a graduate degree, choice of program, strategies for completing a degree, and financial considerations.  It will include a short overview of ETSU's graduate program, including opportunities for GA support.
