Heil Appointed Director of CSC Senior Design Center
Ms. Margaret Heil, interim director of the NC State Computer Science Department Senior Design Center (SDC), has been appointed Director of the Center effective January 2, 2015.
“Margaret is an outstanding teacher and mentor who has been instrumental in the growth and success of the Senior Design Center,” said Dr. Laurie Williams, Acting Department Head of the Computer Science Department. “We are very fortunate to have her assume the role of Director, and our students will surely continue to benefit from her guidance and support.”
