New Course: CSCE 590: Introduction to Image Processing

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.

Freshmen not Ready for Calculus can Take Pre-Calculus Instead

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.

No More Upper/Lower Level Division

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.

Advisement Summer and Fall 2015

Advisement for the Summer and Fall 2015 semesters will run March 16 to 27. All students must be advised before they can register for classes.

We have published a new class offering schedule plan which shows which future semesters we plan to offer each of the required major classes. Use it to plan your future schedule.

Tutoring Available in Swearingen for CSCE, MATH, and Other Classes

The tutoring is in the cube near Swearingen’s Assembly Street (Sonic) entrance.

We have greater math coverage than before as well as some key courses in several engineering, computing and science areas. The schedule is also posted around several bulletin boards in our buildings.

The tutors are hired and paid by the Student Success Center with an attempt to align their abilities with our degree programs. Many are our majors.
