5.3.2 Previous Track Areas (prior to summer 2020)

The following track areas of study are the previous groupings of CS&E upper division elective courses. The track areas below have been grouped into 6 merged track areas as of summer 2020. NO DEGREE REQUIREMENTS HAVE CHANGED. These areas are simply meant to be a way for students to sort elective options by areas within the broad field of compter science. For questions, please work with your advisor.

Track Summary:

*In addition to these tracks, a custom track can be developed in close consultation with the Computer Science Advisor.
