Applicants to COAPS are encouraged to directly contact faculty members whose research interests and expertise correspond to their own. Since COAPS is not a department at FSU, all graduate students interested in working on research through the center must first be registered in a corresponding department. These include computer engineering, computer science, mathematics, information studies, and the department of Earth, Ocean & Atmospheric Science. After you have applied to one of these departments, you can then apply to COAPS.
COAPS students work on a variety of interesting subjects. They are required to do one or two oral presentations each year. To learn more, please review our past student projects and graduate student guidelines.
