2 Spring CSE Master’s Programs Spring 2008 Mike O’Dell CSE Graduate Advisor

3 Spring CSE MS Degree Options  MS CSE  Must have Undergraduate degree in Engineering  MS CS  Exact same degree program as MS CSE  MS SFWE  Curriculum pre-dominantly Software Engineering

4 Spring Definitions  Core Courses – These are mandatory courses that all students MUST take  Major (Specialty) Track Courses – Three courses in a subject area including at least one at 6000 level. Areas:  AI, Database, Systems and Architecture, Networks, S/W Engineering, Graphics and Multimedia, Theory and Algorithms, Bioinformatics.  Breadth Courses – Courses outside of your major/specialty track(s)* *Courses in chosen Major/Specialty Track cannot be used for breadth

5 Spring Non-Thesis (Structured) Degree Plan  Orientation Seminar (5194)  2 core courses: 5311, One of {5306, 5317}  3 breadth courses  Only two may be in the same specialty area  3 courses in major area 1 (one 6000-level)  3 courses in major area 2 (one 6000-level)  1 Elective (can be in area of Major/ Specialty or outside the Department, with prior approval by advisor)  Total Hours Required: 37

6 Spring Thesis Degree Plan  Orientation Seminar (5194)  2 core courses : 5311, One of {5306, 5317}  3 courses in Major area (one 6000-level)  2 Breadth courses  The two have to be in two different areas  1 Elective (can be in area of Major or outside the Department, with prior approval by advisor)  Thesis I (5398) (Repeat if necessary)  Thesis II (5698) Must be taken in graduating semester.  Total Hours Required: 31* NOTE: Thesis II requires non-credit preparatory research work (CSE 5398, Thesis I) in a prior semester.

7 Spring Thesis  Is it for you?  Sequence and Planning  Work Expectations  Assistantship Obligations - GTAs and GRAs  Switching to and from structured  Grades

8 Spring MS Software Engineering  Orientation Seminar (5194)  5 Core courses: CSE 5311, 5324, 5325, (5328 and 5329)  2 Courses from: CSE 5326, 5392, 6324, 6392  5 Electives, including three from CSE  Total Hours Required: 37

9 Spring MS CS MS CSE Distance Learning program in Database and Information Technology  Must be CS/CSE undergrad  Total Hours Required: 36  Courses (Fixed):  CSE Advanced Algorithms  CSE Operating Systems II  CSE Design and Construction of Compilers  CSE Computer Networks I  CSE Computer Architecture II  CSE Software Testing  CSE Software Engineering I  CSE Software Engineering II  CSE Database Systems  CSE DBMS Models and Implementation Techniques  CSE Advanced Topics in Database System  CSE Techniques for Multimedia Databases

10 Spring Important Notes  Lower-level grad course requisites (not hours) may be waived via upper- division/equivalent undergrad courses  E.g. CSE 4344 for CSE 5344, CSE 3330 for CSE 5330, etc.  Courses used toward an undergraduate degree CANNOT be applied to a graduate degree (no “double-counting”)  Graduate-equivalent undergraduate classes (some 4000-level) may be reserved for graduate credit in certain circumstances

11 Spring Grad School Application Requirements  Completion of undergraduate program in engineering/sciences  GRE General Test  Verbal >= 400  Quantitative >= 700  Combined V + Q >= 1150  NOTE: May be waived for UTS CSE undergrads with GPA > 3.2  3 letters of recommendation, S.O.P.  Application, application fee  UTA undergrads with GPA >= 3.5 may be eligible for “Advanced Admission”  GRE and application fee not required  Accelerated application process
