  • EECN Major:

    Fall 2005
    a) ee 465, ee 450, cs 402 (clear 457 placement)
    b) ee 465, ee 457, cs 402 (clear 450 placement)

    Spring 2006
    a) ee 555, cs 570, ee 550
    b) ee 555, cs 571, ee 550

    Summer 2006
    cs 558 or internship

    Fall 2006
    a) cs 551(ramesh govindan section), cs 558, cs 585

    Spring 2007
    1 unit DR (start your job as DR)

    I was an EECN major. For me cs 402, cs 551, cs 558 were the most important courses. They are job fetching practical courses, an important part of your resume.
    If you are looking for networking jobs you should have these courses.

    Good Luck

  • Hi I'm Manoj Gopalkrishnan. Doing a PhD in Computer Science. I guess I could talk about CS 555, CS 570, CS 581, EE 599, CS 599s and courses in the Math department.

  • Hi...I'm Aditya Mandavilli. I graduated with a Masters in Computer Science, specializing in Software Engineering

    Myth: You will not get a job if you don't do either CS551 or CS570
    Fact: This is a very wrong notion among the 'desis'. Loads of students haven't taken either of those two courses (including me) and have been working since graduation. At the same time, students who've taken both courses are still looking for jobs.

    Myth: A CS course which doesn't involve programming is useless and of no use.
    Fact: Again, this is something only the 'desis' believe. You can learn coding online or do a NIIT course. Why a Masters degree? There is life beyond coding. Coding is just a small part of Computer Science & Engineering!

    See you tomorrow

    I guess the students with mechanical & aerospace will be less as compared to computer & EE, but I will be happy to guide the new students with mechanical as a major. I will be there at AIS Orientation today & if anybody of you want to contact me mail me at
