CSE Tracks

To obtain some specialization within computer science, students should
take three or more courses from one of the tracks below.  Further,
within a track, students should take the strongly recommended
course(s). To facilitate planning, we indicate when we plan to offer
each course (ES = Every Semester, F = Every Fall Semester, S = Every
Spring Semester, I = at least once every two years, NC = not currently offered).  Note that CSE 392 Independent Study (ES), with a suitable topic, is encouraged in any track.
