Get Involved With the Enterprise Systems Group
The Enterprise Systems Research Group at York University is joined by Undergraduate, Master’s and Doctoral students from both the School of Information Technology and the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at York University.
We welcome outstanding new students from disciplines within Computer Science, Information Systems, Business as well as behavioral and cognitive sciences. Interested candidates for graduate school are encouraged to skim through our research pages and the current PhD and Master’s projects to get a sense of the work that we do. Undergraduate students of York University interested in a volunteering, paid or for-credit work should have a look at Undergraduate projects.
How To Apply
Graduate students can join the Enterprise Systems Lab as MAIST (School of IT) or CSE students. You can apply to either or both the corresponding departments, depending on your interests and background. In your “Statement of Interest/Purpose” please indicate your interest in our Lab and/or the specific research area. You may also contact us directly if you need to learn more or just communicate your interest. Note, that inquiries about the application process, deadlines, formal requirements etc. should be directed to the program(s) to which you apply.
Undergraduate students of York University can check for opportunities below and apply as indicated.
Experimental Studies in Goal Model Comprehension and Acquisition
Overview. Goal models have been found to be useful for encoding large numbers of alternative solutions to problems and showing how each alternative contributes to the satisfaction of high-level quality objectives. In this project we conduct extensive experimental investigation on how the way by which contribution is modeled affect comprehension of the model with respect to evaluating alternatives.
Required Background. Students with behavioral studies background (psychology, cognitive science etc.) or computer science, information technology or engineering students of HCI or related disciplines.Student has experience and/or interest in performing empirical work with human participants.
Decision Support Visualizations for Requirements Engineering
Overview. The student will experimentally evaluate various ways by which decision problems can be visualized within requirements engineering to support exploration of alternatives.
Required Background. Students with behavioral studies background (psychology, cognitive science etc.) or computer science, information technology or engineering students of HCI or related disciplines.
Tool Support and Evaluation
Overview. The student will complete and thoroughly evaluate, through a case study, a tool suite for reasoning about requirements. Empirical work in the form of experimentation with human participants will be required.
Required Background. Student of Computer Science or Engineering with a strong interest and ability in software design and development. Understanding of/ interest in empirical methods is also desired.
There is currently a number of ITEC4000 – “Independent Research Project” opportunities for undergraduate students of ITEC. Please check the project listing in the School web pages.
