23 Oliver Reeve DEPARTMENT OF COMPUTER SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING

24 DEGREES  Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) offers four degree programs:  the B.S. degree in computer science  the B.A. degree in computer science  the B.S. degree in computer engineering  the B.S. degree in computer science with a specialization in bioinformatics  Difference between B.A. and B.S.:  B.A. stands for “Bachelor of Arts”  B.S. stands for “Bachelor of Science”

25 BACKGROUND  The CSE department is part of the Jacobs School of Engineering The Computer Science and Engineering Building

26 FACILITIES  more than 300 high-performance UNIX/Linux and Windows-based workstations  a large number of laptop systems  several hundred wireless personal digital assistants  two network-attached terabyte disk arrays  four separate high-performance compute clusters  Good use of San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC)

27 DEPARTMENT OF COMPUTER SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING’S RESEARCH

28 RESEARCH THEMES  Algorithms and Complexity  Artificial Intelligence  Bioinformatics  Computer Architecture and Compilers  Computer Graphics and Computer Vision  Databases and Information Management  Embedded Systems & Software  High-Performance Computing  Meaning and Computation  Programming Systems  Security and Cryptography  Software Engineering  Systems and Networking  Ubiquitous Computing  VLSI/CAD (Computer-Aided Design)

29 RESEARCH PROJECT (SMART VIVARIUM)  Smart Vivarium Project  Physiologic and Environmental Monitoring of Rodents  Automatically analyze the behavior of mice from video surveillance  Estimate the position of each mouse in each frame of video.  Label the instantaneous behaviors of each mouse  Data are catalogued and analyzed to determine the health of each mouse.

30 RESEARCH PROJECT (SMART VIVARIUM) Basic Posture Recognition: 1. Sit 2. Walk 3. Stretch

31 RESEARCH PROJECT (SMART VIVARIUM) Count the footstep of mice

32 RESEARCH PROJECT (SLEEP SERVER)

33  PCs maintain network presence and availability in sleep mode  Reduce energy consumption  Creates lightweight virtual images of sleeping PCs, and these pared down images maintain connectivity and respond to applications  Each virtual PC image enables remote access to the sleeping PC it represents  Sleep Server seamlessly wakes up the physical PC - owner tries to connect remotely into the machine from home - the user needs to remotely access stored files and media.  Support more PCs (250PCs with one SS -> 500 PCS with two SS)  Highly Scalable Architecture

35 QUESTIONS PREAPRED

36 QUESTIONS 1.What is the most notable research in your university history? 2.Which school/department has the most number of students? Why? 3.According to the university fact sheet, many graduates become teachers. Why? 4.Is there anything special about the learning atmosphere in UCSD? 5.What do you think is special about CSIE department in UCSD comparing to other universities in California? 6.How do students in USCD study? 7.How is the education for degree students? And Do degree students have chance to do research? 8.How much time and energy do you invest in general education other than professional curriculum? 9.Is the education theory-based or project-based?
