The Cambridge undergraduate programme in computer science includes a strong design theme influenced by Crucible research, including research into computer science project work by Sally Fincher and Marian Petre. Students in their second year undertake an intensive design project working for an external client. Professional clients are often recruited via the Computer Lab Ring and Industrial Supporters Club. Annual prizes are sponsored by IBM and Credit Suisse, and Hardware and equipment has been loaned or donated by a wide range of companies, including a substantial number of Android handsets from Google, Raspberry Pi computers, mBed controllers from ARM, XMOS boards and others.

A selection of these projects with explicit connection to interdisciplinary research concerns includes:
