As a reminder, if you are a Junior or Senior and missed the formal advising period and still need to be advised, then please do one of the following:
As of this semester, CSCE 240 is now called Advanced Programming Techniques. The content of the class remains the same, but the new title better reflects the contents.
There is also a new class called CSCE 247: Software Engineering, which will be offered for the first time ever in Spring 2019. This class is required for all CS majors who started USC in the Fall 2018. Older CS majors can change their curriculum to the Fall 2018 curriculum if they want, or just take CSCE 247 for fun.
The winning team for this year's Backers and Hackers is Tiffany Abernathy, Cayla Przygoda, Jaime Areheart (Backer) for their app GamersCentral, an app for gamers to get connected and discover new games. Backers and Hackers is a completely student-run initiative organized by the Entrepreneurship Club and the College of Engineering and Computing at USC. The program brings together Columbia’s entrepreneurial community and USC’s mobile app development students to transform app ideas into reality.
Dear Colleagues and Students,
I will be offering CSCE 590 Topics in Information Technology (Introduction to Image Processing) this summer from Jun. 25 - Aug. 5.
In this course I will cover the fundament of image processing, including image representations, basic operations, convolution, correlation, histograms, and provide insights on the different areas where image processing is applicable. I am attaching the syllabus for this new course.
We have good news regarding Course Registration and Scheduling.
We have increased the capacity of several CSCE courses (by moving the courses to larger classrooms) for Spring 2017, including:
There are a couple of late changes associated with the Spring 2017 schedule:
Incoming freshmen who are not ready for calculus can start by taking a pre-calculus class on their first-semester freshman year instead.
We recommend that students who feel they are not ready for Calculus take the pre-calculus class first. It is better to take the extra class than to get a D or F in MATH 141/122.
The CSE department has eliminated the upper-level/lower-level distinction. So, you no longer have to fill out the form to move to upper-level.
The new rules will appear in the upcoming Fall 2016 USC Bulletin.
