NSF Grant Awarded to CIS Professor William Robinson

Congratulations to William Robinson, Associate Professor of Computer Information Systems in the J. Mack Robinson School of Business.  He is the recipient of a multi-year, $326,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to study the software development process.

Professor Robinson’s research focuses on uncovering explanations and principles about how software requirements for information systems evolve and how they are managed across project contexts. Said Ephraim McLean, Chair of the Department of Computer Information Systems:  “Bill has received several NSF grants for his technology-focused work in the area of requirements engineering. He is one of our technical professors who blends the needs of business with the realities of fast-paced software development.”

To learn more about Professor Robinson’s work and the software development process, have a look at a few of his recent publications, available in full-text through the GSU Library:
