Some of my friends are curious about what actually I learn on the Master of Computer Science program I’m taking now.
And although sometimes I post about some of the course lessons and notes on my blog, I think it’s a good idea if I write a central page that organized these posts and categorized them to the courses I took. These will also serve as notes both while I’m in the program, and someday when I completed the program.
The following are courses that I took, and I’m specializing in Database management, for a complete list of courses that the program offers, check the Northeastern MSCS program website.
CS 5010 – Program Design Paradigm [PDP] – core course
CS 5011 – PDP recitation
CS 5200 – Introduction to Database Systems
CS 6949 – Co-op Seminar
CS 5800 – Algorithms — core course
CS 6520 – Methods of Software Development
Summer 2011 to Fall 2011
CS 5500 – Managing Software Development — core course
CS 6200 – Information Retrieval
CS 6220 – Data Mining Techniques
Summer 1 2012
I hope this can help any of you who are considering taking masters degree in computer science. So far, I can say it has been a wonderful experience, a lot of sleepless nights, snowstorms (talk about Boston winter), great friends along the journey, and satisfying feelings getting the grade after all of those hardships. 🙂
