It will be your responsibility to follow this plan, and track course pre-reqs and availability.
Many corporate internship programs are designed around a semester system, so this schedule may offer more flexibility and opportunities.
Talk to your academic advisor about Senior Project prerequisites and course planning.
In general, students should complete specific requirements now, and flexible elective courses later. And plan to complete sequences (such as CS, Calc and Sciences) within one academic year, rather than split across quarters and semesters.
Talk to your advisor if you are planning to take Architectures (4010-540) or Requirements (4010-555) within the next year.
Be sure to discuss your minor planning when you meet with your academic advisor to develop your Individual Academic Plan (IAP). Since a minor is 'extra', those courses will not be an official part of the IAP. See the note in item 7 below regarding President Destler's guarantee.
It’s important to note that President Destler’s guarantee for ‘On-Time Degree Completion’ applies to the standard length of the degree (five years in the case of Software Engineering). The guarantee does not include accelerated graduation, minors, extra co-op blocks or any other special cases.
Most of the material from Requirements (4010-555) and Architecture (4010-540) will be combined into a single required course, Software System Requirements and Architectures. This single course will likely be offered in Winter and Spring 2012 (the year prior to the semester switch). Talk to your academic advisor for specific course planning.
Secure Software System Development will be a new course, which current students may take as an elective. (It will be required for students starting in Fall 2012).
