Many projects are selected by the student, and students have the opportunity to develop software applications for the desktop, Internet, mobile devices, iPhone, robotics, and game consoles.
The DMSE program supports many different software platforms; the main focus is still on the desktop PC. Students have created applications from a fully functioning help desk application, graduation audit application, educational software for children, RPG calculator, task schedulers, business and financial applications.
Students have created applications that were designed specifically for the iPhone. One application was designed to help students study using custom created flash cards, as well provide reference sources on the iPhone covering: physics, math, and biology.
