Announcements for Specific Courses/Sections

  • COMP 490/L Senior Design (lecture and lab) is fall only, followed in the spring by COMP 491L (lab only). There are multiple tracks/sections of this required sequence offered every academic year. Any CS bachelor's student expecting to graduate in Spring 2019, Summer 2019, or Fall 2019 who has not already taken the COMP 490/L-491L sequence should register for COMP 490/L for Fall 2018. You may be asked to complete a graduation evaluation to demonstrate you are ready to graduate by the indicated semester. Contact the Department office if you have problems/questions. Prereqs are strictly enforced, you will not be allowed to register if prereqs have not been satisfied. Key prereqs such as COMP 380/L are offered every semester and during the summer.
  • CIT 480/L System Design (lecture and lab) is fall only, followed in the spring by CIT 481/L (lecture and lab). There are multiple tracks/sections of this required course sequence offered every academic year. Any CIT bachelor's student expecting to graduate in Spring 2019, Summer 2019, or Fall 2019 who has not already started the CIT 480-481 sequence should plan to register for CIT 480/L for Fall 2018. You may be asked to complete a graduation evaluation to demonstrate you are ready to graduate. Contact the Department office if you have problems/questions. Prereqs are strictly enforced, you will not be allowed to register in senior design if prereqs have not been satisfied. Key prereqs such as CIT 360/L, COMP 484/L, and IS 451 are offered every semester and during the summer.
  • COMP 482 Algorithm Design replaces the previous experimental course COMP 496ALG. Any Computer Science major who needs to take MATH 482 can take COMP 482 (subject to enrollment caps) and get course substitution credit for MATH 482.
    • CS and CIT undergraduate majors cannot use COMP 482 or COMP 496ALG to satisfy elective requirements.
    • CS majors can only take one of the three courses MATH 482, COMP 496ALG, and COMP 482 for credit toward the major.
    • Graduate students cannot take COMP 482 or COMP 496ALG for credit toward the MS in Computer Science or MS in Software Engineering, but can use it to count for MATH 482.
  • CIT 496SEC/L Security is an experimental course in computer security specifically for CIT majors. Any CIT major needing to satisfy the CIT requirement for COMP 424 can satisfy the requirement by registering for and completing either COMP 424 or CIT 496SEC/L. CIT majors cannot take both COMP 424 and CIT 496SEC/L toward the requirements of the CIT major.
