COURSE-RELATED UPDATES

COMPSCI 210D Introduction to Computer Systems

COMPSCI 210D Introduction to Computer Systems provides an alternative to COMPSCI/ECE 250 for Trinity CS majors; taking either course will satisfy the CS major or CS minor requirement. Pratt students are still required to take 250. The two courses share the general goal of introducing how programs execute and store information, and cover some of the same topics.  However, COMPSCI 210D focuses on software systems aspects from a programmer's perspective whereas COMPSCI 250D focuses on hardware and processor design aspects. COMPSCI 210D introduces concepts that are broadly applicable across the many subfields of computer systems (big ideas in systems), with specific instances demonstrated through labs and assignments in the class.

COMPSCI 210D was introduced in Fall 2021. You will able to use either 210D or 250D to satisfy the major or minor requirement. If you have already taken 250D, you will not be able to take 210D.

New! COMPSCI 316D Introduction to Database Systems

COMPSCI 316D Introduction to Database Systems has undergone a title change. It is the same course as the old "Database Systems."  This course now includes a discussion section and has gained prerequisites as well -- COMPSCI 210D or 250.

New! COMPSCI 351 Introduction to Computer Security

COMPSCI 351 Introduction to Computer Security has an additional prerequisite of COMPSCI 230 along with either COMPSCI 210D or 250.


New! RE-NUMBERED COURSES

These new courses, which have all been taught previously as Special Topics courses (i.e., CompSci 290 and/or 590), now have permanent course numbers. If you have already taken them as a Special Topics course, you may not take the re-numbered course.

COMPSCI 290/590 (old) → COMPSCI 321/521 Graph Analysis with Matrix Computation

COMPSCI 590 (old) → COMPSCI 562 High-Resolution Cryo-Electron Microscopy Image Analysis

COMPSCI 590 (old) → COMPSCI 572 Intro to Natural Language Processing

COMPSCI 590 (old) → COMPSCI 581 Computer Security


S/U COURSE CREDIT

MATH 111, MATH 112 and COMPSCI 101 -- Only these three courses may be taken S/U and count towards degree requirements for CompSci majors and minors. For other majors and minors you plan to have, you need to check if they will also allow these courses to count if taken S/U.

For IDM majors, only these three courses -- MATH 111, MATH 112 and COMPSCI 101 -- can be taken S/U and count towards the CompSci part of your IDM. Check with your other major in your IDM to find out whether they will also allow these courses to count if taken S/U.


REMINDER: CHANGES TO MAJOR/MINOR REQUIREMENTS

1 )  You will now be able to use COMPSCI 210D in lieu of the COMPSCI 250D requirement. If you have already taken 250D, you will not be able to take 210D. If you are an ECE major, you must take COMPSCI 250D.

2 )  For the CompSci majors and minor, we now have a new category of courses called "Social Analysis of CS". Only one course in this category can count as an elective for the COMPSCI majors or COMPSCI minor. The "Social Analysis of CS" category includes: COMPSCI 240 (previously COMPSCI 190 Fall 20 and Spring 21), COMPSCI 342, and COMPSCI 290 (cross PUBPOL 290).
