BYU computer science professor earns highly cited researcher distinction
Brigham Young University Assistant Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering Michael Scott was recently recognized as a highly cited researcher in computer science by Reuters.
 
“I’ve been blessed to have had excellent mentors along the way, and now I’m blessed to have great students and colleagues,” Scott, who did his undergrad work at BYU, said. “This honor means the research we are doing here is significant -- and people care about it.”
 
Scott, whose work explores improving efficiency and accuracy in engineering product design and development process, earned the distinction based on his papers ranking in the top 1 percent of cited articles in computer science over the past decade. Scott’s published works include 13 papers that have been cited more than 100 times, five of which were cited in more than 200 other works.
 
“In the Ira A. Fulton College of Engineering and Technology, we want our research activities to be excellent mentored learning opportunities for students, to bring visibility to BYU and to make positive impact on the world,” Michael Jensen, dean of the college, said. “Given how Dr. Scott has involved students in his research, this recognition shows that his efforts are exemplary in accomplishing these objectives. We are pleased to have him on our faculty.”
