This technical report collects the final reports of the undergraduate Computer Science majors from the Qatar Campus of Carnegie Mellon University who elected to complete a senior research thesis in the academic year 2010-11 as part of their degree. These projects have spanned the students' entire senior year, during which they have worked closely with their faculty advisors to plan and carry out their projects. This work counts as 18 units of academic credit each semester. In addition to doing the research, the students presented a brief midterm progress report each semester, presented a public poster session in December, presented an oral summary in the year-end campuswide Meeting of the Minds and submitted a written thesis in May.
