COMP 490: Independent Project

Credit Hours

Variable (1-6)


Previous agreement of a Computer Science faculty supervisor


An independent project in computer science or related disciplines, under the supervision of a member of faculty.

Students may not register themselves. A request with the exact semester and number of units must be forwarded by the faculty supervisor, after an agreement is made with the student.

A good feature of an independent project is that you can make your transcript show a course title that is specific to your particular project. Fill out the Request for Course Title form, and get the signature of your supervisor and the gpd. More information can be found in the Graduate Program Handbook.
