3. Notes

A. Students with no programming experience should review the Introductory Courses paragraph included on the School of Computing overview page in the 䲹Ի岹.

B. Students should select some of their option courses to be focused in a particular area; the following is a list of suggested areas:

i. Communications and Coding: Ѵձ401;Ѵձ406;Ѵձ418;Ѵձ474;Ѵձ477.

ii. Data Analysis: 271; 371; 372; 473; մ361; մ456; մ457; մ462; մ463; մ464; մ471; մ473; մ486.

iii. Theory in Computer Science: 422; 465; 467; Ѵձ401; Ѵձ402; Ѵձ418.

iv. Discrete Math and Optimization: Ѵձ337;Ѵձ401;Ѵձ402.

C. Students may seek approval for a modified selection of courses for COMA_Options; a written rationale is required.

D. Students interested in pursuing graduate studies in mathematics should take additional mathematics courses.

E. Some CISC, MATH, and STAT option courses are offered only in alternate years. The courses to be offered each year are announced on the departmental websites before the course selection period, and students should refer to that information in planning their course selections.

F. With the approval of the Undergraduate Chair, students who take 500 working on a project directly related to Computing, Mathematics, or Analytics may count 3.00 units towards COMA_Options.

G. Students completing the internship (COMA-I-BCH) will be required to complete 117.0 units towards their Bachelor of Computing degree and 9.0 units in COMP internship courses for a total of 126.0 units.

H. A maximum of 6.00 units from courses offered by other Faculties and Schools may be counted toward the program and/or Plan requirements. This includes courses in BMED, COMM, GLPH, HSCI, LAW, NURS, and courses offered by Smith Engineering.
