Dear Colleagues and Students,
I will be offering CSCE 590 Topics in Information Technology (Introduction to Image Processing) this summer from Jun. 25 - Aug. 5.
In this course I will cover the fundament of image processing, including image representations, basic operations, convolution, correlation, histograms, and provide insights on the different areas where image processing is applicable. I am attaching the syllabus for this new course.
This scholarship is awarded to rising sophomores or juniors in any College of Engineering and Computing program who have a strong interest in the Savannah River Site and the Savannah River National Laboratory. SRNL Scholars may receive up to $4,000 a year for up to two years. All full time, upper division students are eligible to apply. Applicants must have authorization to work in the United States on a full-time basis for other than training purposes (student/temporary visas do not qualify). Deadline is August 1. See the SRNL Scholarship page for more info.
We have good news regarding Course Registration and Scheduling.
We have increased the capacity of several CSCE courses (by moving the courses to larger classrooms) for Spring 2017, including:
There are a couple of late changes associated with the Spring 2017 schedule:
Incoming freshmen who are not ready for calculus can start by taking a pre-calculus class on their first-semester freshman year instead.
We recommend that students who feel they are not ready for Calculus take the pre-calculus class first. It is better to take the extra class than to get a D or F in MATH 141/122.
The CSE department has eliminated the upper-level/lower-level distinction. So, you no longer have to fill out the form to move to upper-level.
The new rules will appear in the upcoming Fall 2016 USC Bulletin.
These are just plans so there are no guarantees, but we will try our best to make these plans happen so you can graduate on time.
