CS-396   Senior Project in Computing I

This is the first course of a two- semester sequence, in which the student will complete a department-approved computing project. This capstone experience will give students the opportunity to apply concepts and techniques learned in the classroom by developing a significant computing application. The first semester will typically focus on any necessary library research, design and prototyping, implementation and wiring should normally be done in the second semester. The student will submit regular progress reports to a supervising faculty member and submit a preliminary report on the project's status for evaluation by a departmental committee. Prerequisite: 262 and senior standing. Students may, with department permission, receive credit for 396/398 by taking Engineering 339/340.
