A calling to computer science


University prepares students for a profession in demand

A MESSAGE FROM PRESIDENT HARRISON

Dear friends of CSU Monterey Bay,


Fall is always an exciting time on campus as we welcome new and returning students for another academic year. Fall 2011 has been no exception, with the largest number of undergraduate and graduate students in the universitys history more than 5,000. We also began the year with our accreditation reaffirmed by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges through 2019. In this edition of our university magazine, we are pleased to highlight the School of Information Technology and Communication Design, which is preparing talented students to meet the needs of employers in the highly skilled and challenging fields of computer science and web design. Like so many of our majors, ITCD is distinguished by the extent of hands-on experience that students receive, both in the classroom and in internships. We are looking forward to providing this program a new home in the next few years, as we continue to plan an academic building that will house both ITCD and the School of Business. Elsewhere in this edition, you will learn about the accomplishments of our outstanding students and expert faculty; innovations such as the KelpFly research boat developed by Dr. Rikk Kvitek; the generosity of donors Mike and Linda Dorn; and the competitive excellence of the 2011 mens golf team and their inspiring coach, Jason Owen. We have much to be proud and excited about, and it would not be possible without the support of our alumni, our parents and our friends throughout the Monterey Bay region and beyond. Thank you for your continued involvement with CSU Monterey Bay.

Dr. Dianne F. Harrison

Real-world readiness
In both IT and communication design, graduates are ready to solve problems

By Joan Weiner

eigh Anne Warner came to CSU Monterey Bay knowing exactly what she wanted to study. I was on the robotics team at Carmel High, said the sophomore computer science major, and I really liked programming the robots. Her decision to focus on software engineering was an easy one. Warner is part of a trend at CSUMB and nationwide. Enrollment in computer science programs is rising after a decade of declining numbers brought on by the end of the dot-com bubble. That may be due, at least in part, to celebrity entrepreneurs such as Mark Zuckerberg and the late Steve Jobs, whose

social networking products students use every day. Whatever their inspiration, students have several options for learning about computers at CSUMB. The School of Information Technology and Communication Design (ITCD) offers bachelors degrees in computer science and in communication design. Students take several core courses and then choose a concentration which appeals to them. For computer science students, software engineering is the most popular concentration. Among design students, web design tops the list. Students in both programs learn how to solve real-world

problems and do it in a socially responsible way. They also learn to communicate and collaborate, because most class projects are done in groups. These skills make them very much in demand. We have more employers calling to find interns than we have students to send them, said Dr. Eric Tao said, director of the universitys School of Information Technology and Communication Design. In one real-world example, ITCD faculty member Dr. Bude Su and a team of students and alumni worked with Natividad Medical Center to develop online modules for staff training. The hospital was faced with the challenge of training 700 nurses and physician assistants to use an electronic patient charting system that replaces paper charts. Traditional training methods would have required 24 hours per employee, taken several months and cost more than $1 million. For the county-run hospital in Salinas, that investment of both time and money was too high. But the online training system, with assessment built in, shortened the training to half a day and also provided the staff with anywhere, anytime access. Student leigh Anne Warner It would have cost the of Carmel cheers her entry in hospital three to five times a mini robotics competition. more to get this work done somewhere else, Dr. Su said. And we believe our quality is better than what weve seen. With the combination of technology and media, ITCD has a lot to offer the local medical community, Dr. Tao said. Thats in addition to the nursing program the university is scheduled to start next summer. We can handle projects involving electronic medical records,

he said. And we can work with large sets of medical records to do data mining. That reveals things that wouldnt be obvious from paper records. For CSUMB students, the opportunity to apply what theyre learning in real-life settings extends beyond the medical realm. Along with their counterparts at Monterey Peninsula, Hartnell and Cabrillo colleges, they have the opportunity to intern with industry and government agencies organized by MBRACE the Monterey Bay Regional Academy of Computing Education. MBRACE is funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation. It aims to attract a diverse group of students to the field of computer science and give them hands-on experience working in professional settings.

The goal is to strengthen the pathway from high school to community college to CSUMB to the workplace, said Dr. Sathya Narayanan, director of the undergraduate computer science program. Were trying to grow a community around computer science. Fourteen students were placed in internships through MBRACE last summer with the Naval Postgraduate School; Cisco Systems; Cruzio, a Santa Cruz-based Internet provider; and the city of Watsonville. Warner was one of them. At NPS, she worked in the Center for Network Innovation and Experimentation, helping to develop an Android application. It was a fantastic opportunity to learn about networking in a lab environment and to gain experience in software development, she said. We are paired up with a partner for doing homework and projects. Its useful thats the way programming is done. As Warner looks ahead to graduation, she said shes considering seeking work in Silicon Valley, adding, My dream job is working for Google or Apple.

CSU Monterey Bays communication design program is the only one Im aware of that brings together traditional design and information technology, said Kevin Cahill, assistant professor of web design. People want to access information wherever they are, Cahill said. Its the technology that allows that to happen. But, in order for that information to be useful, it needs to be well designed. Our program focuses on that, whether students are designing for a mobile device or the web or a manual to train people. The web emphasis attracts students who enjoy or at least are not intimidated by the technical side of the web. Cahills students have designed websites for community organizations such as Youth Orchestra of the Salinas Valley and the Arts Council for Monterey County. Current projects include sites for the Center for Community Advocacy, the International School of Monterey and the Citizenship Project. The visual design emphasis also gives students the opportunity to work with the community. Members of Professor Bobbi Longs publications design course www. rstnightmonterey.org have produced the poster and marketing materials for First Night Monterey since 2003. Last year, they designed materiStudent raissa Figueroa deals for the Monterey County Rape signed marketing materials for Crisis Centers annual Together First Night Monterey 2012. with Love 10K race. These projects give students real-world experience of working with a client and progressing through various stages of the design process, Long said. This program gives students a chance to show their talents, skills and creativity, but it also teaches them how to listen and respond to what they hear, as well as how to manage a project. The third choice for design students is interactive media, including work on games and mobile applications for smart phones. Its a way to use computers to mimic real-world behavior, said Dr. Ben Erlandson, who teaches multimedia and game design. Joan Weiner

Computer science isnt taught so narrowly here, he said. They arent training us for a job; theyre training us for a career. That was part of the theory behind an academic concentration in computer game development that was added to the ITCD curriculum this semester. For those under 30, games are their primary form of entertainment, Dr. Tao said. There is a demand for computer scientists who choose to concentrate on games. Hes quick to add that students work on serious games, not just ones intended for entertainment. We push our students to design games that have some tangible benefit to the player, rather than to kill something, Dr. Tao said. While computer science enrollment has increased, demand for graduates skills is projected to remain high. Federal statistics indicate that IT jobs will grow at double the overall job rate in the next decade.

Planning is under way for the next academic building on the CSU Monterey Bay campus. Located on Divarty Street near the Tanimura & Antle library, the new building will house the schools of Business and Information Technology & Communication Design (ITCD). The building will enhance the learning of business and technology by providing shared spaces for students and faculty members to work on innovative projects. Putting these two schools together was a strategic decision, said Dr. Eric Tao, chair of ITCD. We are educating a new generation of students who can integrate technology and business practices. Students working together will help to encourage the spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship crucial for learning and for the future of Americas economy. Dr. Marylou Shockley, chair of the School of Business, echoed that sentiment. Collaboration will benefit both ITCD and business students through projects that will promote community economic development, Dr. Shockley said. The technology-rich building will cover 58,000 square feet on three levels tied together by an atrium and will incorporate a variety of energy-saving features. Eight classrooms and 14 laboratories are planned, along with faculty and department offices, conference rooms, student study areas and lounge, and office space for the dean of the College of Professional Studies.

Imelda Muoz studies outside of the university quad of National University of Ireland, galway.

Finding a passion, following a dream


By liz MacDonald

When Professor Maria Villaseor asked Imelda Muoz to speak to her after class, Muoz worried that she was in trouble. As it turned out, Dr. Villaseor wanted her to apply to be a McNair Scholar, a nationwide program to increase the number of underrepresented, low-income and first-generation students who earn doctoral degrees by encouraging undergraduate research. Under Dr. Villaseors mentorship, Muoz discovered her passion for Chicana/o Studies, a concentration within the Human Communication major. Her research focus is the Irish Gaelic Revival movement of the late 19th century and the Chicano movement of the 1960s how both groups reclaimed their identity after colonization. Muoz spent her junior year exploring this topic while studying abroad at the National University of Ireland, Galway, and she plans to develop her findings for her senior capstone project and scholarly publications. As a sophomore, Muoz co-authored an article with Dr. Villaseor and fellow McNair student Maria Reyes (HCOM 11). The article discusses mentoring strategies for Latina students and will appear next year in the Journal of College Student Retention. Muoz hopes to continue her education through the doctoral level and one day teach at a university. My bachelors degree is for my family, she said, acknowledging the sacrifices of her parents, who migrated from Mexico and took agricultural jobs to provide a better life for their children. My masters will be for my community. And my Ph.D. will be for myself.

where people play, he said. The $300,000 Yamaha can maneuver in water as shallow as 18 inches. It features an armored hull that allows it to bounce off rocks and a flotation collar that makes it stable in surf. To navigate kelp, Dr. Kvitek mounted a customized aircraft fan engine to the stern. The fan provides enough thrust to push the hull over the kelp forest without damaging plants or clogging the motor. It also carries an array of sonar equipment and a laser mapping system that scans the shore to generate seamless land-to-sea topographic maps. In addition to support from CSUMB, funding came from PG&E and NOAA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The KelpFly performed two successful proof-of-concept trials at Whalers Cove near Point Lobos and Stillwater Cove in Pebble Beach this spring before being deployed at Diablo Canyon. Now Dr. Kvitek is slated to complete work with the KelpFly at Elkhorn Slough and Morro Bay later this fall. Hes also working with the U.S. Navy to bring the vessel to their facilities at San Clemente and San Nicholas islands next year. The Navy is interested in mapping the near-shore habitat that supports black abalone, a threatened species, and locating sand channels amid reefs and kelp forests where they can run communication cables without harming the environment or causing wear on the cables. CSUMB students participate in all this research, and Dr. Kvitek makes sure Seafloor Mapping Lab projects have enough funding to pay them for their work. Students assisted with construction and deployment of the vessel, and process the data it collects. Students learn to turn out a professional product thats of great need and value for resource management agencies at the local, state and federal level, Dr. Kvitek said.

veryone at the Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant knew Professor Rikk Kvitek was authorized to enter restricted coastal waters around the plant except for the guards with M-16 rifles. Dr. Kvitek was aboard CSU Monterey Bays newest research vessel, the KelpFly, a highly modified 160-hp Yamaha watercraft used for seafloor mapping. He was gathering data this summer on underwater fault lines to help assess geologic hazards. That information is critical to public safety, especially in light of the disastrous earthquake and tsunami that damaged Japans Fukushima nuclear plant in March. While maneuvering near the power plant, Dr. Kvitek had no idea his life was

in jeopardy. Luckily, the guards received his credentials before opening fire. I was in a zone where guards were authorized to take lethal action against intruders, he said. The radios were going nuts with reports of some guy on a Jet Ski. Kvitek previously has mapped 1,200 square kilometers of Californias coastal waters, providing detailed topographical data of the seafloor extending three miles from the coast. The KelpFly, named for an insect species that lives on kelp, allows him to map shoreline waters that his larger vessels cant reach. These are some of the most important areas to understand because lots of animals live there; it is where coastal erosion and sediment transfer occur; and it is

Business Development Center shares expertise, creates jobs
By Joan Weiner

ike many small business owners, Shawn Bakker was doing fine until the recession hit. I was in the habit of going from one job to the next, said Bakker, who in 2007 moved to Salinas from Colorado and founded his company, Bakker Construction. Building a business wasnt a priority. My phone was ringing enough that it kept me busy. But when the phone calls slowed down, he realized he needed to take action rather than simply react to the economy. Thats when his lender referred him to the Small Business Development Center at CSU Monterey Bay for help. Working with SBDC adviser Keith Holtaway, he developed strategies and refined tactics that helped him identify his target market as home remodeling and improvements for small businesses. I went from being a carpenter who owns a business to being a businessperson who runs a construction company, Bakker said. Keith made me aware of that paradigm shift. It was a hard shift to make. Keith helped me through it. He is not alone. Since opening its doors in late 2009, the center has provided 2,833 hours of management and technical assistance to more than 256 small businesses and entrepreneurs along the Highway 101 corridor from King City to Gilroy.

SU Monterey Bay has been honored as one of the best campuses in the country when it comes to helping migrant students succeed in college. The universitys College Assistance Migrant Program or CAMP, a project designed to help students from migrant farm worker families pursue higher education, was named one of the top 10 at guiding them through the first year of university studies in a ranking by the U.S. Department of Education. Two years ago, 98 percent of CAMP students successfully completed the academic year. Only five schools in the country had a higher success rate. And 89 percent of those students enrolled for their sophomore year, beating the national target in that category by four percentage points. When efficiency and effectiveness were considered, CSUMB ranked among the top three schools nationwide in the dollar amount spent to provide services. The program offers pre-college transition and first-year support to help students develop the skills needed to stay in school and graduate. Services include help with admissions and financial aid, parent orientations, high school and community outreach events and summer orientation programs. CAMP is just one example of how CSUMB is committed to making college accessible to all students. That commitment is one of the principles on which CSUMB was founded to provide access to excellence for students who reflect the states diversity. Driven by CSUMBs Vision, our outreach and support programs serve the underrepresented students of our area by helping them succeed in high school, getting them informed of college opportunities and financial aid, preparing them for entrance exams, and supporting them as they enter and eventually graduate from CSUMB, said Perry Angle, director of Early Outreach and Support Programs.

Pay It Forward provides $5,000 a year for four years and guidance from a mentor to selected incoming students from Monterey County high schools, who in turn are asked to pay it forward by mentoring youngsters at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Monterey County and The First Tee of Monterey County. The program now has 40 students and 40 mentors, with a goal of doubling that in the next two years. The atrium naming recognizes the Dorns generosity and leadership in helping to develop Pay It Forward and Executives-in-Residence, an umbrella program that engages community leaders in addressing social issues, Dr. Harrison said. Mike and Linda have a philosophy of giving, she told the audience of friends and supporters at the unveiling ceremony. They both believe it is essential to invest in the communities where they live, whether fulltime or part-time. They continue to do that in Monterey County. The Dorns, who have a home in Pebble Beach, have been successful residential builders in the Green Valley area south of Tucson, where they also have been leading supporters of an organization to help older adults continue living in their own homes. Jim Bracher, a longtime leadership consultant who established Executives-in-Residence and Pay It Forward at CSU Monterey Bay, said the Dorns were instrumental in the establishment and success of both efforts. The Dorns stepped forward to fund the first Pay It Forward scholarships, and Linda Dorn suggested the name. She was inspired by a 2000 film that portrays the compounding power of generosity, based on a book by Catherine Ryan Hyde. Bracher told the Dorns their work will continue to pay dividends long into the future. You are strengthening this community with every pay it forward action that emerges because of your inspiring vision of what can be done to make lives better, he said.

Olivia Douthit Killian, pictured here with her husband, Jack Killian, set up an annuity to create an endowed scholarship in honor of her late husband, Harold Douthit. He graduated from high school and college and obtained an excellent education without any financial support. I hope this scholarship will relieve some of the financial stress for deserving students in their efforts to obtain an education, she said.

helen rucker has endowed a scholarship she had been awarding annually since 1998 in honor of her late husband, who served at Fort Ord. Rucker, a retired teacher and librarian and longtime community activist on the Monterey Peninsula, encouraged others to support scholarships through the Fort Ord Alumni Association. She described how her husband credited the Army for giving him the chance at an education. He was dedicated to learning, Rucker said. Its appropriate that a scholarship be created in his name.

Frank and Donna McDowell are supporting scholarships for students who have financial need but do not otherwise qualify for government aid. Their goal is to provide students the right help at the right time and make a big difference in their life, Frank McDowell said. McDowell, a former real estate executive, said he and his wife decided to support CSU Monterey Bay students after they retired on the Monterey Peninsula. I believe very strongly that education is the best possible solution our society has, he said.
