Computer Science students partner to develop airport website
A partnership between the UTC Computer Science Department and the Chattanooga Airport Authority has resulted in a new look and improved on-line services for the airport’s website. Working with the airport webmaster Joe Alegre of Alegre Designs, the team of UTC students designed the site to make air travel information easier to access for local passengers.
The student team of Yogini Jokhakar, Beom Ko and Yeon Whang created new programs, including a fare calculator which helps customers calculate the cost of flying from another airport. Additionally, the site now offers sign-up capability for the Airport’s e-newsletter and fare sale notifications, as well as a page of answers to travelers’ most frequently asked questions.
“Our partnership with UTC has once again yielded significant rewards to the Airport Authority as we now have an updated website that is both functional and user-friendly for our customers,” said Mike Landguth, President and CEO of the Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport Authority. “The student team, along with their professors and Mr. Alegre, have developed a website that will provide better service to our customers every day.”
"We are very grateful for the opportunity for our Computer Science Department to partner with the Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport Authority. As a metropolitan university, UTC views its partnerships in the community as vital. The experiential learning opportunities for our students and the applied research projects for our faculty members that are made possible through relationships with the governments, agencies, and industries in our community distinguish a Chattanooga educational experience. By working together, we can accomplish far more for our region." Dr. Roger Brown, Chancellor, The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.Visit the Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport online, and fly Chattanooga!
