355-360. Advanced Topics in Computer Science
A study in greater depth of a topic covered in the core curriculum, an introduction to an area of
specialization within computer science, or readings in the research literature. Intended to
broaden students' perspectives on the range of opportunities that will be available to them in
professional practice and graduate-level study. Recent topics have included Algorithms,
Computer Networks, Robotics, Client Server Systems, Structure and Interpretation of Computer
Programs, and Bioinformatics. See Topics Courses. Prerequisites: CSC 140 and 151.

511. Extended Research in Computer Science (1/4)
Reading coupled with research on a specialized topic. This adjunct course must be taken over
four successive terms. Prerequisites: departmental GPA of 3.0 or higher, prior completion of one

course in the Department at or above the 200 level, and permission of instructor. (CR)

512. Professional Practice in Computer Science (1/4)
Each student will gain experience in the iterative development of software through all stages of
development, in presentations of a project to their peers, and in the review of their peers’
projects. Success will require application of knowledge and skills acquired in several core and
elective courses. This practice solving problems like those encountered in industry and advanced
study will prepare students for the challenges and opportunities that await them after
graduation. Students should consult with an advisor in the department before beginning the
course. In this course, students should plan on improving a project begun and substantially
completed in another course. That other course may be taken concurrently. The course involves
meeting twice each term for a total of 12 hours per semester and approximately 24 hours of
work outside of class. Is repeatable once for credit. Prerequisites: CSC 140, CSC 144, CSC 151,
CSC 218, CSC 301. Students should take this course during (or after) the year in which they
complete other requirements for the major. (CR)
