FALL 2005 Course Roadmap
Of the courses being offered in Fall 2005, the following are suitable
for most incoming MS students: Fundamental Algorithms (G22.1170),
Programming Languages (G22.2110), Unix Tools (G22.2245), Operating Systems
(G22.2250), Data Communications and Networks (G22.2262),
Multimedia (G22.3033-005), and WWW Programming (G22.3033-008).
Students with a strong mathematical background, particularly linear algebra,
might also consider Scientific Computing (G22.2112), Computer Graphics
(G22.2270), Computer Vision (G22.2271), and Machine Learning (G22.2565).
We strongly recommend that incoming students take either Fundamental Algorithms
or Programming Languages in their first semester
Requirement C of the MS requirements specifies that an MS student must
pass at least one course in each of two applications areas. The
areas are Graphics, Computation for Science and Society, AI, and Databases.
The following courses offered this spring (2005) satisfy this requirement:
Graphics: Computer Graphics (G22.2270), Computer Vision (G22.2271)
and Multimedia (G22.3033-005).
Computation for Science and Society: Scientific Computing (G22.2112),
Topics in Numerical Analysis (G22.2945), Monte Carlo Methods (G22.2960),
and Computational Biology (G22.3033-004).
AI: Computer Vision (G22.2271), Machine Learning (G22.2565), Heuristic
Problem Solving (G22.2965) and Machine Translation (G22.3033-003),
Databases: Advanced Database Systems (G22.2434) and Distributed Computing (G22.2631).
Requirement D of the MS requirements specifies that an MS student must pass
at least one project course. The following courses offered this semester
can be used to satisfy that requirement: Compilers (G22.2130),
Heuristic Problem Solving (G22.2965), Producing Production Quality
Software (G22.3033-006), and Info. Tech. Projects (G22.3812).
