Department of Computer Science
Are you a high school student thinking about computer science as a major and a career? Are you employed full time and considering a career change? If so, there are many good reasons for considering the computer science program at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh.
The department has just completed a project under a National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates grant. This allowed us to host and provide stipends to eight students for each of three summers from 2009 through 2011. They worked on a variety of research projects that explored the common theme of open source software development in online computer science learning environments.
In general, Peggy Adamski, the Academic Department Associate, her email address is email@example.com, will usually have the departmental office open from 11:15 - 3:15 on Monday and Wednesday, from 6:45 - 10:45 on Tuesday and Thursday, and from 6:45 - 3:15 on Friday. David Furcy and Tom Naps are now co-chairs of the department. David will maintain office hours from 9:00 - 11:00 every MWF in Halsey 221. Tom will have office hours 11:00 - noon on MWF and 4:00 - 5:00 on TTh in Halsey 214. You can also contact the chairs by email at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an appointment at a time other than their office hours.
Participation in the ACM Programming Competition
If you like to code, participation in this fall's annual ACM Programming Competition will require that you enroll in the one-credit CS 314 course. Once the class roster is finalized, there will be a meeting of all students enrolled in the course at a time to be arranged in the second week of the semester. At that meeting, team rosters will be established along with weekly practice guidelines that teams will follow prior to the actual contest on Saturday, November 9. If you're interested in enrolling and participating in the contest, contact Tom Naps (email@example.com), letting him know the CS courses you've completed and the grades you've earned in them. Detailed expectations for the course are described in its syllabus.
