A concentration in Computer Science is arranged by an individual contract between the student and the computer science faculty. Each student's contract is expected to represent a complete, coherent program of study that is consistent with the goals of the individual student. A student's contract should be developed in consultation with the Coordinator of the Computer Science Concentration. Early submission of contracts (e.g., sophomore year) is encouraged for planning purposes.
A concentration in Computer Science with emphasis on software normally includes Computer Science 172, 272, 274, 372, 376 and one additional course, normally a Computer Science course. The choice of the additional course must be approved in advance by the Coordinator of the Computer Science Concentration. A qualifying seminar in Computer Science is offered at least once each year.
A concentration in Computer Science with emphasis on computer electronics and interfacing normally includes Computer Science 172 and 272, Physics 232 and 251, either Computer Science 372 or 376, and an additional course approved in advance by the Coordinator.
