Happy October! For those who may have missed our newsletter hitting your inbox last week, we wanted to keep everyone in the loop.
For starters, we opened enrollment in four new classes! These focus on contemporary skills blended with programming concepts and computer science subject knowledge. To enhance the classes, we’ve brought in leading tech companies and fantastic researchers / practitioners to teach with us.
- HTML5 Game Development: This class, brought to you by Google, will teach you HTML5 programming, centered around creating your own browser-based games. HTML5 is an emerging platform for building engaging and immersive web applications.
- Introduction to Parallel Programming: In this class, brought to you by NVIDIA, you will break out of your linear approach to programming and learn how to harness the power of GPUs and parallel thinking to create lightning-fast programs.
- Interactive Rendering: What is it about the surface of an apple that makes it look so different from the surface of an orange? In this class, brought to you by Autodesk, you will learn the basics of 3D computer graphics, including the math, physics, and programming necessary to model three dimensional objects.
- Functional Hardware Verification: Computer scientists often forget about the importance of, well, computers (and the chips inside them). This course from Cadence straddles the interface between hardware and software, and will teach you how to verify whether hardware behaves as expected.
