2013 Curriculum and Guidesheets

The Fall 2013 curriculum and degree guidesheets are now posted: CS, CE, and CIS. The significant changes from last year's requirements are:
  1. The CS major has dropped the CSCE 200-level elective requirement.
  2. The CIS major has replaced the CSCE 200-level elective requirement with CSCE 201.
  3. The CE major now requires CSCE 490/CSCE 492 instead of ENCP 481/ENCP 491/ENCP 492.
  4. CSCE 374 has changed its number to CSCE 274, changed its pre-requisites to just CSCE 146, and should now be taken a semester earlier by CE majors.
As always, current students can use these requirements if they desire.

Class Overrides Status

I just wanted to let you all know that we are working on processing your requests. The new registration system has slowed the process a little, but now we should be able to address these issues. As the first steps in handling all of these we have initiated the process of creating:
  1. A new section of CSCE 211, late afternoon TTH,
  2. A new section of CSCE 240, late afternoon TTH,
  3. A larger room for CSCE 490 (=ENCP 491)
We will address all of the requests as quickly as we can make decisions. We are just starting with the most commonly occurring ones. For those wanting to get on the list, the website for the googledoc for override requests and for other issues with the Fall 2013 schedule is here. Dr. Manton Matthews

ENCP 491 is now CSCE 490

Computer Engineering majors will note that ENCP 491 is not being offered. This class has been replaced with CSCE 490. If you are a CE major and want to use the old curriculum sheets, which list ENCP 481, ENCP 490, ENCP 492 as a requirement, then you will need to take CSCE 490, CSCE 492. CE majors no longer need to take ENCP 481. Starting with the Fall 2013 curriculum (to appear) ENCP 481 has been dropped from the Computer Engineering major. It will only require CSCE 490, CSCE 492.

CSCE Carolina Core Courses Approved

Our CSCE 101, CSCE 102, and CSCE 145 classes have been approved as satisfying the Carolina Core Analytical Reasoning and Problem-solving (ARP) requirement. We have also submitted CSCE 390 as a candidate to satisfy the Values, Ethics and Social responsibility (VSR) Carolina Core and hope it will be approved by Fall 2013, but we cannot guarantee that this will happen.
