CS Departmental Honors Info Session Invitation

22 Oct
Tuesday, 10/22/2019 5:30pm to 6:30pm
Computer Science Building, Room 150
Undergraduate Event

The CS Departmental Honors program is open to CICS honors students in the CS BA, CS BS, and Informatics programs. 

Students generally become eligible to start honors research within CICS after completing sophomore-level program requirements. We recommend that students start honors research in the spring of their junior year when possible, although starting fall senior year also works fine and is CHC's normal timeline. Students who plan to start honors research within CICS in Spring 2020 should attend this meeting. 

This meeting will provide an overview of the CS Departmental Honors program including eligibility requirements, the application process, how to get started with finding a research advisor, how to prepare a 499Y semester plan, as well as other honors research opportunities.

Note that 499Y semester plans will be due by the last day of the fall semester for registration in Spring 2020.

If you are unable to attend the meeting, the presentation slides and eligibility information will be available on the CS Departmental Honors webpage following the meeting:
