For information about the Spring semester offerings, contact the CS Dept. in mid-October.
For information about the Fall semester offerings, contact the CS Dept. in mid-March.
Every company under the sun is looking for good programmers, including Sandia National Lab, Intel, IBM, Phillips, Motorola, LANL, Jaycor, and NASA.
Many companies post jobs on the csundergrad listserv, which includes most of our undergraduate students. There are co-op and internship opportunities available as well as part-time and full-time jobs. For more information about employment, contact the Career Services Dept. at 277-2531 (SSC, RM. 220). If you would like to be added to the csundergrad listserv, send email to email@example.com. If you are an employer and you're looking for good programmers, send an email message directly to firstname.lastname@example.org. and/or email@example.com (graduate students).
Yes. Send email to firstname.lastname@example.org to subscribe or unsubscribe.
Yes. The program is accredited by the Computing Sciences Accreditation Board.
I don't plan on transferring to UNM for a couple of semesters. What do I need to do to make sure that all of the classes I'm taking next semester will transfer toward a degree in Computer Science.
Contact a Undergraduate advisor each semester before you register.
Official transcripts need to be sent directly to the Admissions Office by the originating institution. The Admissions Office prepares the initial transfer evaluation.
If you want to have your transcripts evaluated by a CS advisor, so you can find out which credits will transfer towards the degree, and what you would have left to take, set up an appointment with a C.S. advisor, and bring an unofficial copy of your transcripts to the advising session.
Students transferring to the C.S. program from another department at UNM should initiate the paperwork at the advisement office in the Computer Science Dept. Students transferring to the C.S. program from another department within the School of Engineering should initiate the paperwork in their present department office (see the next question/answer).
Go to your current SOE department, and ask an advisor for a transfer form to transfer to the CS Dept. The advisor will send this form along with your file folder to the CS advisor.
No. The C.S. Dept. does not offer full scholarships. Scholarships are offered each year in May, but students must be admitted to the department before they can apply for a scholarship.
Contact the Scholarship office at 277-6090 for more information about scholarships. This is a good web site for various scholarships outside of UNM: www.scholaraid.com
No. At this time, most of our classes are offered during the day.
Primarily Java (CS 152, 251, 351, 361), also C (CS 241), Assembly (CS 341), Scheme (CS 257), LISP (CS 451), ML (CS 451), and Prolog (CS 451).
No. All of those classes are taught at Continuing Education (277-CLAS) except for Autocad and Khoros. Autocad is taught in the Mechanical Engineering Dept. as ME 122. For information about Khoros, contact Prof. John Rasure in the EECE Dept. (277-1351).
No. If you're interested in a career where you can use art + computers, we recommend majoring in CS and completing a minor in art at the same time.
CS classes below the 300 level cannot be used as technical electives. CS 390, 420, 490, and 492 cannot be used as technical electives. Several classes in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering are acceptable as technical electives, but Computer Engineering minors cannot use EECE 438 as a technical elective. All technical electives must be approved by a CS advisor.
We are located on the first floor of Farris Engineering Center.
No. You must receive a C- or better in all of the classes that are counted toward the degree.
It is used to pay for computing facilities for students.
At most, 24 semester hours taken for CR/NC may be applied toward the degree. Courses taken for CR/NC may only be used as general electives to satisfy the requirement of 130 hours. Courses that are required for the degree cannot be taken for CR/NC.
Two reasons: First, it is a common requirement of other Engineering disciplines. This is important so that students will have the prerequisites needed for classes in other Engineering disciplines and so they can change their major more easily should they decide to do so later. Second, modern computers are based on electronic switches and electricity is covered in physics.
It depends on the individual, but you may use the following guidelines:
Students that don't work -- 5 courses
Students that work 15 hours per week -- 4 courses
Students that work 20 hours per week -- 3 courses
We don't recommend taking more than 12 hours of technical classes (i.e., cs, math, science) in one semester.
