General Computing Track: 2007-2008 Requirements

 

The General Computing track is the most flexible route through the Computer Science major. It provides students with a broad-based background drawing from the entire spectrum of computing. Depending on the courses taken, students can be exposed to the design and architecture of computers, the development of software, and the theory and techniques used in designing efficient computer programs. Students can also learn about application of computers to problems in science, in human-computer interaction, and in data management. This track prepares students for careers in many different areas of computer science.

In addition to the degree requirements for all Computer Science majors, the General Computing track has the following requirements specific to the track:

  • Track Foundation

    There are no Track Foundation courses specific to this track.

  • Track Core

    Seven courses selected from the following are required:

  • Track Capstone

    One of the following options is required:

    • CSCI 4308-4 and CSCI 4318-4, Software Engineering Project 1 and Software Engineering Project 2.

      This sequence must be taken contiguously and may not be taken before the senior year. Prerequisites for Senior Project include the successful completion of a minimum of 36 credit hours of Computer Science Foundation, Track Foundation, Track Core and Computer Science Electives. See Senior Project for more information.

    • CSCI 4950-8, Senior Thesis.

      Senior Thesis may not be taken before the senior year. Prerequisites for Senior Thesis include the successful completion of a minimum of 36 credit hours of Computer Science Foundation, Track Foundation, Track Core and Computer Science Electives. See Senior Thesis for more information.

See the General Computing Flow Chart for a quick overview of all degree requirements for the track.
