Use of DBMS software in the development of an information system. Overview of the ANSI/SPARC Study Group on Database Management Systems model. Relational database model techniques. Emphasis on user views necessary to support data management and retrieval.

Prerequisites: Completion of three core courses.   Development of a detailed, significant project in computer science under the close supervision of a faculty member, perhaps as one member of a student team. This project may be a software implementation, a design effort, or a theoretical or practical written analysis. Project report with optional oral presentation must be evaluated by three faculty members including the project supervisor.  

Prerequisite: Completion of three core courses. Research leading to submission of a formal thesis. This course provides a thesis experience, which offers a student the opportunity to work on a comprehensive research topic in the area of computer science in a scientific manner. Topic to be agreed in consultation with a supervisor. A written thesis must be completed in accordance with the rules of the Graduate School and the College of Engineering. Graded A-F.

Doctoral thesis proposal development based on technical writing process, data interpretation, experimental design. Students who successfully complete the course will be able to assess information from the primary scientific literature, formulate scientific questions (hypotheses), and generate an experimental plan to help validate or nullify their hypothesis. Students will demonstrate a command of oral and written communication skills by completing this course.

Research investigations of a fundamental and/or applied nature defining a topic area and preliminary results for the dissertation proposal undertaken before the student has qualified for EAS 701. With approval of the student's graduate committee, up to 15 credits of EAS 601 may be applied to the 30 credit requirement for dissertation research.


Online and Continuing Education Courses

Offered as needed to present advanced material to graduate students.

Software development in the context of various paradigms. The strategies and methods of the procedural, object-oriented, and functional paradigms are studied and practiced. The modeling of software processes will be considered from both the process and product views, as will the appropriateness and measures of effectiveness of these processes in the design of software systems. Students will apply these measures to the course exercises, determining and reviewing the impact of these methods on individual design.
Register for this course.
