UM Globe

SEAM is the name of an informal organizational container which holds an assortment of software-oriented projects at the University of Maryland. Members of the SEAM community are enthusiastic in our efforts to improve industrial practices for developing sound, sustainable and secure software systems.

As described on the projects page, some of our activities are research-oriented with external support. Research inspired and conducted by undergraduates who participate in any one of a variety of campus programs constitutes other of our efforts. As projects mature, some make the transition into a community service role, such as the TerpNav pedestrian map now featured by the main campus website. And historically, our projects have served educational roles, either supporting our capstone software engineering classes or serving as the base for a practicum in other advanced software engineering courses.
