Title: Department of Computer Science and Engineering: An Introduction


1
Department of Computer Science and
EngineeringAn Introduction
The end of computing is not numbers but
insight. Richard Hamming Later
but the end of computing is not in sight ...
  • Oscar N. Garcia
  • NCR Distinguished Professor and Chairman
  • College of Engineering and Computer Science
  • Wright State University

Introduction
  • An Introduction to the programs of the CSE
    Department
  • Admission, Administration and Advising
  • CS and CEG How are they alike? How are they
    different?
  • An Overview of the Department
  • Summary and Advice
  • A Demonstration

3
Admission to the College
  • In general, when you come into WSU as a freshman,
    you are part of the University College which
    handles your advising and placement testing.
  • There are two ways of being admitted to the
    College and to your program of preference
  • You complete 45 QH, keep a 2.25 QPA average on
    all courses and in all CSE courses, C or better
    in all core courses (English, Math, Physics, CS)
  • Your High School and SAT/ACT scores qualify you
    for Direct Admission to the College and program.

Direct Admit Route
Transfer Students
Most of the time you take a year of Computer
Science courses (CS240, 241,242), a year of
Calculus (MTH229, 230,231), Intro. to Engn. (EGR
190, 191), English and Gen. Ed. Courses, and
CEG255 for Computer Science majors or CEG 260 for
Computer Engineering Majors. THERE ARE HELP

7
Mentors and Curriculum Advisor
  • Once you are admitted to the College of
    Engineering and Computer Science and to the CSE
    Department you are assigned a Mentor who is a
    faculty member in the Department on whom you can
    call for any non-program of study (POS) question.
  • All POS questions are handled by Mr. Dan
  • Spiegel by appointment in the Departmental
    office (RC303).
  • A student-mentor list is posted across RC305

    Taylor, Karen Meyer, Dan Spiegel

9
Computer Science or Computer Engineering?
  • Computer Scientists are interested in the
    computer as a logical machine that enables
    symbolic manipulation through programming and
    data transformations and analysis.
  • Computer Engineers are interested in the economic
    design, reliability, reparability, and use of the
    physical machine, but must know CS.
  • Both are concerned with the social and economic
    impacts of computing and with keeping up-to-date
    via life-long learning.

10
Brief Comparison between CS and CEG
  • Total number of QHs CS 192 CEG 196
  • Computer Science 8 CS 7 CEG courses
  • Compute Engineering 5 CS 9 CEG
  • CEG is somewhat related to EE and other
    engineering subjects in CS there is more
    flexibility in the electives and may even include
    a Business or Science option (or a Bioinformatics
    option in the near future.)

11
Computer Engineering Program Overview
  • In addition to the core courses
  • CEG 402 Networks
  • CEG 453 Computer System Design
  • plus EE and ME courses such as
  • ME 212-3 Statics and Dynamics
  • EE 301-4 Circuit Analysis I and II and Labs
  • EE 321-2 Linear Systems I and II
  • EE 331-2 Electronic Devices and Lab
  • and a few electives.

12
Computer Science Program Overview
  • In addition to the core courses
  • CEG 255 Introd. to Computer Info. Systems
  • CS 405 Introd. to Data Base Management Syst.
  • CS 466 Introd. to Formal Languages
  • CS 480 Comparative Languages
  • plus a wider range of electives and options in
  • Business, Science, or other concentrations, and
    in Bioinformatics in the near future.

13
Computational Processes
  • Most frequently have been visualized as

Output or Robotic Actuator
Data or Sensor Input
Processing or Logical Transformation
These processes have been classically considered
as carried out by hardware and software under the
control of operating systems that manage the
access and flow of the information.

We are strong in Research
  • In FY2000 the department received 5.3M in
    research grants from different agencies.
  • In FY1999 the WSU CSE department received more
    basic research grants and more per faculty
    dollars from NSF than any other public CS
    department in Ohio
  • Advanced undergraduates participate in many of
    these research activities in their junior or
    senior years through REUs or Research Experiences
    for Undergraduates
  • ITRI is closely associated with the Department.

Advice _at_ 0.00
  • Start the Day with a Smile!
  • Keep your priorities in line, w/o contradictions
  • Every day make a list of what you will do every
    hour during that day
  • If you need help NEITHER BE BASHFUL NOR WAIT TOO
    LONG TO ASK FOR IT!
  • Live One Day at a Time
  • Survive the This Year, the others will follow

Good luck!!!

Summary
  • The Computer Science and Engineering Department
    at WSU is one of the leading (if not the leading)
    departments in the field in Ohio
  • We are also a department that cares for its
    undergraduates, but the initiative to contact
    Mentors, the Curriculum Advisor and Help Rooms
    must rest with the student.
  • Your department faculty and administration are
    willing and able to listen to anything you have
    to say anytime and help you if you ask.
