Spring 2014: Special Topics in COMP

The topics covered in sections of COMP 388 and COMP 488 change based on the current offerings in any given semester. This page will host the sections planned for the current semester and give specific information on them that the generic course page lacks.

Undergraduate Courses

COMP 388-1: Enterprise Software Development

This course is crosslisted with COMP 434: Enterprise Software Development.

COMP 388-2: Human-Computer Interface Design

This course is crosslisted with COMP 441: Human-Computer Interface Design.

COMP 388-4: Foundations of Computer Science I

The description is listed here: COMP 388 Foundations of Computer Science I.

COMP 388-5: Foundations of Computer Science II

The description is listed here: COMP 388 Foundations of Computer Science II.

COMP 388-6: IT Project Management

This course is crosslisted with COMP 477: IT Project Management.

COMP 388-7: Advanced Experimental Computing: Pervasive Systems

The Pervasive Systems Seminar is a new, modern, and (dare we say it) hip course focused on advanced distributed systems (a.k.a. the Web or Internet of Things). In this course, students will do research and development in a style reminiscent of experimental physics, wherein the theory and principles are brought to life via the innovative use of hardware and software. Students in this course are expected to be well versed in multiple areas of theoretical and applied computer science and should have a solid track record in foundational courses prior to taking this course.

Furthermore, this course aims to provide high student engagement and is recommended for students who wish to pursue a research-oriented career, which means a career where thinking is expected as part of the job description. In the interest of clarity, this doesn't imply an academic career and could include a career in preeminent technology companies, not-for-profits, and other think tanks.

As such, this course has a "by permission only" or "invitation only" character to it.

COMP 388-8: Advanced Experimental Computing: Pervasive Health Computing

For additional information see http://pac-lab.org/new-students/.

COMP 388-9:  Advanced Experimental Computing: Pervasive Physical Computing

For additional information and research topics see http://cs.luc.edu/whonig/research-activities-and-student-projects.
