What classes is /g/ enrolled in for the fall?
OOP class (required
Formal lang and Automata
I might swap the algorithm class for software quality and testing.
Just starting so I'm just taking some beginning programming classes, and a networking class (required for programming degree). Also taking an intro to game dev/design class for the hell of it. Couldn't fit anything else there, anyway.
I did some quality and testing and hated it but enjoyed algorithms and data structures
im doing system programming, mobile app development, parallel computing and microprocessors and digital systems
Automata and Formal Languages
Fundamentals of Software Engineering
Technical & Professional Writing
Probability and Statistics
Digital Technology and Culture (le reddit class xD)
Would highly recommend keeping algorithms. Not only is it useful, it's interesting too.
As for classes I have, none. Going to be doing my year in industry. Pretty fucking excited to start.
babbys first networking
babbys first AI
advanced computer architecture
advanced numerical modeling
Thinking about dropping either computer architecture (since I barely passed the first one) or numerical modeling (since the prof teaching it was the prof who taught babbys first numerical modeling, and he's kind of a shit teacher). Which does /g/ hate more?
This one is going to depend a lot on the instructor, there's a ton of material but it's worth learning if you're interested in programming. Probs gonna suck.
Discrete math feels a lot like CS, one of the most valuable classes I took. Well worth your time.
undergrad pleb, not masters masterrace yet. Im not even sure what to expect, my advisor just told me that would "be a good fit for me" and told me to add it to my schedule and "not to worry about the requirements", which is par for course of how i usually get into classes.
how do you enjoy your shitty colleges? I'll be over here studying at the delicious MIT.
>algorithm design and analysis I
>computer system design (architectures)
>some computer graphics stuff
Gonna be a tough one.
BTW, finally swapped computer engineering for CS, glad to be rid of all the EE stuff.
Linear algebra and integral calculus
I'm honestly quite excited about this. But I'll probably spend more time lurking 4chan than studying.
I get no choice.
Last year it was
Computer Graphics and Image Processing
Concurrent and Distributed Systems
ECAD and Architecture Practical Classes
Logic and Proof
Mathematical Methods for Computer Science
Programming in C and C++
during first term.
You guys doing 3/4 courses, wtf is that shit
Switched out of DeVry to my old school, so there goes my 15 months of CompSci shit to go back to "Calculus 1" and "Fundamentals of Computer Science" or something as pre-requisites to get into the Comp Sci major at my real school. Tragic waste of student loans, but it's going to be a fun semester for me
I haven't picked them all yet.
Plant Molecular Biology
Some other course; there's a fungal biology and global ecology course I'm considering.
And I'm going to try find an online Psychology course because fuck commuting.
"Logic for Computer Science", "Programming Paradigms", "Computer Organization and Components" and "Numerical Methods"
Second year CS. I hope it's more challenging than the first year. Aside from linear algebra everything was basically rehashed knowledge from high school.
I'm going to the biggest community college in America and I hate my life. Hopefully I pass these courses, work and school make me so damn tired.
Intro to C++
Intro to Chemistry
PreCalc Algebra and Trigonometry
Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs
Engingeering Physics 2
Social Issues and Ethics in Computing
>tfw last semester
>Social Issues and Ethics in Computing
I hate this horseshit. This and the "sustainable development in computer science" were the biggest wastes of time ever. I think half the time of each lecture was spent trying to explain how this shit had any relevance to us to begin with.
Ya its total bullshit but w/e, not much I can do about it.
>tfw always act like an autist 1 on 1 but don't really have a problem with speaking in front of a class
Always so awkward though since in classes like that no one's really listening so you get zero reaction out of them.
>SQL databse structuring.
>Web design and maintenance
>I already work a job making $17 an hour with full benefits at only 22 years old. Union is talking about pushing to make me tier 1 employee next contract (1 year away). This means guaranteed 33k yearly pension and a pay increase up to $25/hour. To do the same damned job.
>tfw I don't know if going to school for a bachelors is even worth it after I get my 2 associates. I'd probably just get it to have it. Fall back plan type deal.
I do, but far from enough to pay for an apartment in the city as well as food, despite the additional subsidies for being a home owner etc.
The monthly cost of the apartment is pretty much exactly as much as I get paid each month, and then on top of that there is food, electricity, internet, phone bills, etc..
>Computer networks I
>Unix software development
Looking forward to writing my own shell for this class
1 credit thing that is mostly to get a team together for CCDC
>Physics with Calc I
Waitlisted for the first Japanese course since I've got only 6 quarters left and I want to get up to at least 202 since that will fulfill some requirement. Probably won't manage to get in though since it's a popular course
Experimental Design and Regression Analysis
Introduction to Bioinformatics
Multivariate Data Analysis
>tfw 19 hours of graduate courses
>trying to finish masters before 4-year undergrad scholarship runs out
>won't have time for ricing/shitposting
Euclidean and Non-Euclidean Geometry
Models of Languages and Computation
Elementary Japanese 1
A one-hour course which prepares for the ACM competition
I'm finishing up this coming semester so I'm taking:
I actually put off Calc II for the longest time. I found the other math electives to be WAY more interesting so I let it sit on the backburner.
>and more maths
life of a CS student
>Intro to computer programming
>and probably one more
Hopefully I can pull my shit together and actually study in math so I can get past a C. The computer programming course is a joke as is geopolitics. Just need to get the maths out of the way before I transfer to a college that offers Software Engineering.
I want to graduate this spring and I need an upper division credit to satisfy my Bachelors in Comp Sci.
Also a lot of the internship jobs i've been seeing around here want some kind of Java experience so I figure it'd be a good idea to get some experience in it. Honestly I prefer C++ but i'm biased since that's what i've been taught in since freshmen year.
Can we talk about this, I'm jumping into a CS tract a bit later and I forgot most of my maths. What should I do to be top dog at maths and use my love of programing to help me understand it better.
I won't disagree with you there but it's almost over so I don't care anymore.
It would be SIGNIFICANTLY faster if I had a car, but I can't drive and I highly doubt I could afford a car (initial cost, upkeep, and insurance). As for going to a different school, this one gave me the most money to attend so I thought it would be the financially responsible choice for my future.
On the bright side, I can operate on less sleep for longer than most people could with a decent nights rest. It took a bit to get that way but I find that it gives me an edge when I have large, time consuming projects to work on.
Math requirements seem to vary wildly by school. At my school cs majors had to take 3 calculus classes (differential, integral, multivariable,) diff eq, statistics, linear algebra, discrete, combinatorics... I also took a numerical computing class which was a math class with some programming assignments. Covered things like splines and eigenvalue problems.
Some schools seem to really skimp on the math, which is not a good thing in my opinion.
This. I'm that school that doesn't teach math. It feels like I'm skimping on what I can learn, but at the same time I hate math, hence why I'm trying to get as much algo and other theoretical stuff in.
I'm going for an associates, I have all my GE done from a soft science major I did.
I don't need math classes to get my associates, however I have vowed to be the best coder I can be; so I would like a cursory understanding of maths that would allow me to do algorithms well.
Also I have a interest in electronics as a hobby so maths is nice to know for circuts
>Social Implications of Computer Technology
>Efficient Algorithms and Intractable Problems
>Introduction to Artificial Intelligence
>Structure and Interpretation of Systems and Signals

Easiest semester so far.
What is with all you nerds taking 5+ classes? How will you have time to shitpost on 4chan and watch anime?
Literature, English version
Introduction to Antique Cities
Some science class from the general department
Introduction to Social Sciences
Probability and Statistics, graduate version of those classes
>tfw failing most classes on first year, picking up the concentration, and then finishing the generals
That's pretty nice anon.
I'm double majoring in Math and CS, finished all the maths, halfway into CS, and finishing generals this semester. Shame that I failed my first year, this shit would be done on the forth year.
Computer Engineering here. Just switched from Mechanical Engineering so I have to get the babby EECE courses out of the way.
>Intro to Comp. Sci. + Lab
>Intro to Computer Engineering + Lab
I've got Calc 2, Physics 1, and C#.
I'm kinda worried about Calc 2 because I hear it's the hardest, but I did really good in Calc so hopefully it won't be too bad.
Stupid question: How different is C# from C++? My school's intro to programming class is in C++, so I know a little bit of it, but to get into any of the more advanced programming classes I need to take this C# one.
3-4 classes during one semester at my school is 15-18 credits. Anymore than that, and it's almost impossible for the schedule to work. I know a dude who said he took 24 units last year. He managed to pass most of his classes, but he was constantly late and his GPA went to shit because C- is passing.
I need to keep my 4.0 so I can be competitive and get into a not shit shit school.
I don't know how you guys find time to take so many.
i could only afford fall classes if the fbi-cia-nro-dia-gchq emo cracker craps gave me $50,000 usd
they're very obstinate & seemingly unwilling to budge
how could they do this to me
i clearly am not accountable
>Second year CS. I hope it's more challenging than the first year. Aside from linear algebra everything was basically rehashed knowledge from high school.
>Aside from linear algebra everything was basically rehashed knowledge from high school.
You do realize this is exactly what linear algebra is, algebra...BUT IN ROWS AND COLUMNS *GASP
where my part-time bros at ?
>tfw working 40 hours a week
it's almost impossible that he's being truthful, if his school is similar to american universities.
i go to purdue and they dont even let us take more than 18 credits each semester.
Oh really? So I guess this class won't be too difficult then. They'll probably expect us to know basic programming shit like arrays and functions, and other stuff we learned in the intro class we're required to take, but I'll bet my ass that most people won't remember simple shit like that. The first couple assignments will probably be easy review shit.
Yeah it's an American Community College, and that dude is kinda a bullshitter. I'm kinda inclined to believe him though, because our school is the type that will let you sign up for as many classes as you want. As long as you pay up, they don't care how hard you fuck yourself taking too many classes or ones that don't matter.
Just remember to go into the class with an open mind, don't be one of those douches who thinks they know everything and has an ego. I TA'd a class and saw too many kids like that outright fail.
typically when people describe 60-70 hours of a non factory job, they're adding the hours where they sit in their office and browse /g/ and shitpost all day.
i worked at a TTD programming office and most of my day was spent waiting around for assignments, but i clocked 85 hours some weeks.
>Just remember to go into the class with an open mind, don't be one of those douches who thinks they know everything and has an ego.
I'm probably the exact opposite of that guy. I'm not very creative or great at programming, and I'm actually thinking of getting out of CS because I think I lack the coding talent to be great at it. The only reason I got an A in my last programming class was that I'm good at learning languages.

>mfw this guy is probably a highschool senior trying to act like his life is gonna be great
I don't know exactly, since it varies depending on the classes. It's gotta overlap though. I have a hard time getting 4 classes that don't overlap.
That's the kinda shit I want. Good on you, bro. I'm jelly.
How is the algorithms class not required? I've never heard of a CS major where algorithms wasn't a core class. It's probably the biggest bang for your buck CS class you can take.
>classes added to BB
>can find the student list via the email feature
>facebook all of them
>make a list of interests and topics to talk to people about on the first day
am i the only one that does this? it really helps me talk to people. like if i see a girl recently got a new hair color or piercing ill sit next to them and tell them it looks good. its a good way to make friends
> Tfw you wish you were.
Financial law pays but is boring and stressful as fuck. If I could do it again I'd probably be a prosecutor or some relaxed field like Estate law...maybe become a professor...
Law hasn't helped my view of humanity either.
It's gonna be a fun (albeit busy) year.

essentially babby's first proof class (after discrete math), looking at computers, understanding numbers, shit after statistics 101, and a trippy class that turns music into math
I guess I don't have the commitment either. I find programming interesting sometimes, and I can do okay if I'm given an assignment, but I really don't have the drive to code shit on my own or develop personal projects like you guys do.
The project I've done on my own is a Bash script to help organize media on my server, and it's poorly implemented and only works 40% of the time?
You can have what I have if you like 10-14 hour days for 3 years of LS and then the same for your job for like 8 years. You had better fucking love reading and writing though or you will die.
Also if you want a Gf you should lie and tell her you are something other than a lawyer. So many gold diggers. I keep a shit car to go on dates with to scare sway them away.
Intro to Financial Accounting
Computer Architecture and Organization
Intro to Database Systems
Principals of Marketing
Try and guess my major. Yes, all those classes are directly related to my major.
There's also only one of them, meaning the s at the end doesn't indicate plurality. You don't say you went to the gymm, you have psychy 101, or you got western civn.
* note that it's an ambiguous area of english whether to treat mass nouns as plural or singular, so different versions of english have solved the problem differently.
I'm taking history, spreadsheets, business math, and personal finance because I am not a CS major. Also, I'm not taking many classes because I took a bunch in the summer, so I'm going to spend my spare time learning about data science. I'm going to dive deeper into relational algebra, algorithms, learn the python modules, learn more statistics, and watch some free online videos on AI and machine learning. Also, probably learn some more C and operating system stuff.
>Math Methods of Physics

Pretty good schedule, first time I got away with taking a bullshit liberal arts class
nothing atm, I'm still looking into what I should go into. What career should I look at, /g/?
All I want in a job is at least ~$20/hour without having to interact with people. ie, none of that "let's discuss a project" or interacting with customers.
I didn't say Software Engineering Technologist
Im justing having a laugh, its just in my university the eng programs are so highly regarded for whatever reason, although us softies always seem to get the shit end of the stick in terms of funding and shit. We share 90% of our classes with CS
no it isn't. you're thinking of student loans. financial aid is a government subsidy for poor people when they go to college (the good kind of welfare). There might be some programs that offer some loans at a steeply discounted rate, though. But for the most part it's free money.
No Im pretty sure I go to Mcmaster. Also Im pretty sure more then one school can be great. I'm also not denying McGill is the better school, but Mac is still top 100 in the world last I checked.

>Intro to Hip Hop
First year CS Major here. I'm not so sure about the intro to Hip Hop Class. I was told by an academic mentor that for the 5th class it should be a fine art this semester and that Intro to Hip Hop is an easy and fun class that fills that requirement. However I'm white and don't listen to hip hop at all. Should I change it? The other options are film, music, dance, and theater related classes.
I'm at Cambridge, here you have to actually do a bit of work. I didn't quite realise how much a joke other unis were.

My dealer was from Fitz: pharmacology bro. I had a look round once or twice. Not bad, but a bit of a walk from the centre.
Yeah, I liked Emma, lucked into it on the advice of my sixth form teacher. Almost applied to Churchill, lol.
I mostly listen to electronic music but I never really listen to hip hop or rap unless it's ironically with my friends. The class is also supposed to be about the history and culture of hip hop and how it's relevant in society. However it's one of the degree requirements for the Africana Studies major (lel)

fuck off CS faggets. linux using non-CS stemlord checking in ftw.
Yeah it's alright on the inside, once you get over the prision-esque architecture. I just picked it because it had 3% higher acceptance rate for my subject than the other colleges (except girton, but no thx)
Yeah, if I'd put some thought in and gone by acceptance rate, Emma would probably have been bottom of my list.
lol, Girton. I once stayed the night post-medic-formal. The walk back, in full summer heat and with a heavyweight hangover, was a killer. Hella pretty, though; had a girlfriend there after I left, fond memories of tipsily fooling around in the grounds.
1. Independent Research Elective
2. Introduction to Networking Systems
Networking major here. That second class listed above is a literal fucking grad-level electrical engineering course that somehow became a requirement for UNDERGRAD networking seniors. Official stats put it at 67% failure rate with most students passing on their second or third attempt. This fall will be my second attempt, and if I fuck up again, I won't be able to graduate on time because this stupid fucking course is offered only once per academic year.
Yes, I am fucking stressed.
I'm taking CS1 too, but that's online.
Pretty much all of our core classes were packed into the first two years, starting my third year this fall. After this semester, I don't have a single class that isn't related to CS left.
Stars, Galaxies and Cosmology
Communication in Technology (required class, not looking forward to it)
Java Programming I
Introduction to SQL
C/C++ Programming I
Composition I (also not looking forward to)
I already know java pretty well, and know the basics of C++. I am mainly taking java in case there are things that aren't covered (and to boost my gpa), and c++ is the programming class most of the upper level comp sci classes have as a prerequisite. I won't have to take any pure math classes because I went through BC calculus in high school and know enough to pass all of the math prerequisite tests.
It is my first semester but I don't see the issue with taking 6 classes. It is just 50 minutes per class twice a week. Even with homework it should still take less time/day than high school. I am looking forward to (hopefully) not having to spend almost 10 hours a day in/getting ready for school with most of that time being wasted, and then spend even more time at home doing pointless projects. The only hard part of high school is dealing with the bullshit.
If you were able to figure out C++, C# should be easy.
I thought calc2 was the easiest, calc3 was a pain in the ass for me though, and the only class I've gotten below an A- in so far.
a lot of this communications stuff might deal with physical layer...in which case it can get intense with propagation and handling of waves, signals, types of hardware, convertsion and systems, etc. -- too much for a CS major or even programmer, if you are going to be a EE then yes, maybe. but i'll take a look at it, i'm curious....

An animation course that'll take four years and take me through both 2D and 3D animation.
If you like being artsy/design-y in the tech world this seems like the only thing you can do. The market's already flooded with web designers and the like and Animation is extremely popular in Canada for some reason. Everyone else I've met in this program got a job within weeks after graduating, including a friend of mine.
Worse case I just get a bank loan ontop of the freebie one you get in Canada for school that you don't pay for until you are no longer a student, live like a student for another four years and go for software engineering ontop of that.
Then enjoy my crippling debt that'll be equal to most Americans once they're done school due to the inclusion of the bank loan.
