The Department of Computer Science and Engineering offers Concentrations in several areas. Each Concentration is designed to offer a structured set of elective courses around an organized theme. Most of those courses are CSE electives, while some of them are technical electives, and they would all count towards requirements of a CS or a CPEG degree. In those cases where a student has a choice for an elective requirement, the elective selection must be approved by the Director of Undergraduate Studies.
Note that the current curricula for the CS and CPEG programs for the class of 2015 and beyond have the following elective requirements:
CS requirements: 5 CSE electives, 2 technical electives, 1 free elective
CPEG requirements: 4 CSE electives, 2 free electives
Upon a student's successful completion of a CS/CPEG program with a chosen Concentration, the Concentration will appear on the student's transcript.
The Concentrations that are currently available in CSE for CS or CPEG majors are:
- BioInformatics and Computational Biology Concentration
- Cloud Computing Concentration
- Cyber Security Concentration
- Mobile Computing Concentration
(note that the IT Leadership concentration has been discontinued; interested students are encouraged to look into the engineering minor in corporate practice)
Students who are interested in pursuing a Concentration program may contact one of the following people:
- Ramzi Bualuan, CSE Director of Undergraduate Studies
- Kevin Bowyer, CSE Department Chair
