Unformatted text preview: An Overview of Computer Science and Engineering College of Engineering University of South Florida KJC/RAP001 (04/17/98) PowerPoint overheads for Freshman Experience lecture Rafael Perez Professor Computer Science and Engineering Ken Christensen Assistant Professor Computer Science and Engineering College of Engineering KJC/RAP 006 Three tracks in the undergraduate CSE program Computer Science Software oriented Computer Engineering Hardware oriented Information Systems Systems oriented Hmmmmm.. Three tracks in the undergraduate CSE program Key differences CE has full engineering core CS and CE have same math and physics IS has reduced math and physics IS has no hardware courses CS and CE are accredited (by CSAB and ABET) No accreditation standards exist for IS curricula anywhere Accreditation standards are under work by IEEE and ACM KJC/RAP 007 College of Engineering College of Engineering KJC/RAP 008 Three tracks in the undergraduate CSE program A graphical view of the differences More or less hardware Flexibility of electives IS CS CE No hardware Hardware Electives College of Engineering KJC/RAP 009 Which track is right for me? There really is not that much difference In the end analysis all are a computer science degree However, a good way to choose is to look at possible career paths Which one for me? College of Engineering KJC/RAP 010 Which track is right for me? A tree of career paths Hardware Development Software Systems, support CE CS IS CSE curriculum tracks IBM, Intel, etc. Microsoft, Sun, etc. NationsBank, etc. College of Engineering KJC/RAP 011 Spet versus generalist The pyramid of job opportunities and salary Spet (few jobs, high salary) Generalist (many jobs, lower salary) $ Number of jobs College of Engineering KJC/RAP 012 Spet versus generalist Spet jobs typically are Very competitive to obtain Some require a M.S. or Ph.D....
