No food or drinks of any kind are allowed in any of the computer labs. Please, let's keep the labs clean and free of anything that can spill and damage the computer equipment.
If you'd like to contribute to this newsletter, feel free to send contributions to Dr. Monge. Contributions can range from notification of jobs, internships, fellowships, and scholarships to announcements of campus events, and questions you'd like answered which would be relevant (primarily) to CECS students.
In case you are unable to register in a class because the system says you do not satisfy the prerequisites of the course, please contact your academic adviser ASAP to determine the problems and resolve them if necessary.
If you are a transfer student, it is quite probable that you already fulfilled the GE Category E (Self Integration) requirement. If that is the case, please notify your academic adviser so that the ENGR 101, 102 and CECS 105 requirements can be waived.
Embedded Applications Technology Society (EAT) is a student organization geared toward Computer Engineering and Computer Science majors and focused around the world of embedded systems. We participate in corporate networking, local, national, and international competitions, and have fun exploring fascinating and advanced topics in our field. Our lab offers computers that are fully customizable, run by and for our members, and we have a full array of hardware design equipment. We meet Tuesdays and Thursdays at 4pm in ECS-304. Visit the EAT Society Website, or send email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or stop by ECS-303 for more information.
ACM-W is pleased to announce a new program that will provide support for women students in Computer Science and related programs (at the undergraduate or graduate levels) who wish to attend research conferences. Exposure to the CS research world can be an important factor in encouraging a student to continue on to the next level (undergraduate to graduate, Masters to Ph.D., Ph.D. to an industry or academic position). It is not required that the student be presenting a paper at the conference she attends.
Complete details about the scholarship including the deadlines (October 1 is the next upcoming deadline) and application form are available at the website on ACM-W Scholarships for Attendance at Research Conferences
AfterCollege is a network of employers and students and they provide announcements on job and internship opportunities. Check out the listing they have prepared for students in our department.
