Note: Students may take CSC 243 and one (1) Additional Major Elective in lieu of CSC 241 and CSC 242.
Students must take seven (7) Major Field electives chosen from the grouped list below. Of these, three (3) must be CDM courses and three (3) must be MAT courses, and one (1) could be either a CDM or MAT course.
Students must earn a grade of C- or higher in all major elective courses.
It is recommended that students concentrate on one or two areas for their advanced classes to achieve depth, but they are not required to do so. Students are strongly encouraged to discuss course selection with an advisor. Students may wish to arrange with a professor to take an independent study or a research experience (MAT 399 or CSC 399 or IT 300) in order to explore a subject more deeply than is possible in a scheduled course.
The courses in the theory area explore the mathematical and logical foundations of computer science.
The computational methods area investigates quantitative and computational methods in computer science.
For students with an interest in the computational relations between syntax and semantics.
For students who are interested in statistical and computational analysis of data. Many of the courses in this area require the student to take MAT 351-MAT 353.
Computer vision studies the mathematical and algorithmic underpinnings of image analysis and image processing.
Open elective credit also is required to meet the minimum graduation requirement of 192 hours.
See www.cdm.depaul.edu to see sample schedule of course requirements on a year-by-year basis.
Students in this degree must meet the following requirements:
