- This course fulfills NW and QSR credits!
- This classes is much smaller than other intro CSE courses, and has strong course evaluations from past quarters
- This course is designed for people with *zero* prior CSexperience. If you’re even a little curious about programming, data analysis, logic, or computational thinking, consider enrolling!
- CSE120 gives a broad introduction to CS concepts. It’s not a programming course, though you will learn to use a programming language.
CSE 120, Computer Science Principles
MWF 2:30-3:20pm + TuTh Section (6 hours total)
5 credits of QSR and NW credit!
Not a programming course. No prior CS experience allowed. 🙂
This is a broad course that introduces a variety of CS-related topics, including:
- logical reasoning and problem solving,
- creating “digital artifacts” such as Web pages,
- computers and data, and
- the ethical, legal, and social aspects of information technology.
If you’re interested in computer science but have no prior experience, CSE 120 will give you a broad overview of many CS topics in a fun and interesting way!
