Presentation Transcript

  1. Computer Science Major: The major is a set of at least 11 semester courses distributed over Theory,Programming, and Systems. All students take a seminar on the state-of-the-art of a topic in computer science such as computer architecture, machine vision, parallel processing, robotics, and digital sound and music processing. Computer Science Minors: digital art, digital music, theory, programming, systems, computer science and language, and mathematical foundations of computer science, or self-designed. Computer Science Department Smith College Northampton, MA 01063 www.cs.smith.edu Arts oriented courses: csc106, Introduction to Computing and the Arts; csc240, Computer Graphics; csc354 Seminar on Digital Sound and Music Processing, and others. For more information on these courses, visit the computer science web site at www.cs.smith.edu. Justine Kurtz '08 Double CS/German major Sarah Unnokon '08 CS major, Art Studio minor Computer Science collaborates with the Art, Theatre, Dance, and Music Departments, in developing a program in Arts and Technology Diana Larry ‘08 CS major, Engineering minor Moitri Ghosh '08 Psychology major, CS digital art minor TessaTaylor ‘08J CS major

  2. Facilities Computer Science contains and shares assorted computer-equipped classrooms in the science center. Machines include dual boot linux/windows workstations as well as triple boot Macintosh computers. Students and faculty members pursue interdisciplinary research and class work using digital circuits and microprocessor kits; robot arms, dogs, and platforms; sensors and synthesizers, for digital sound and music; digital video cameras and a Gypsy 3.0 wireless model motion capture system; and a 3-D printer, a laser scanner and a laser cutter for rapid prototyping. Computer Science shares the Center for Design and Fabrication, a college-wide resource used by artists and scientists alike. Applications such as Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator; Macromedia Dreamweaver; Matlab and Mathematica; Final Cut Pro; Processing, Flash and Sketch up are available, as are QT, Java, and python for advanced programming; Keykit, Csound, and Pure Data for computer sound and music; and OpenGL, GameMaker, and POV-Ray, and blender for computer graphics. Ngiare Underhill ‘08 Double CS/Economics major Jordan Crouser '08 Double CS/Math major Students Computer Science students are very active in the department. Two liaisons (Jordan Crouser & Stephanie Gibbons this year) attend department meetings, and run social events like movie and game night. Many students work as teaching assistants, running help sessions, grading, and aiding students during teaching labs. Many students also do research as special studies, as research grant assistants, or as honors theses.
