Feel free to attend either lecture, regardless of the lecture section in
which you are official registered.
About the course:
CSE 132 builds on CSE 131's introduction to computer science. While CSE 131
considered stand-alone programs with little effect on the outside world,
CSE 132 explores
concepts, techniques, and design approaches for dealing with persistence,
concurrency, and network computing.
data structures are presented as needed to support discussion of these
topics. Concepts and skills are mastered through the design and
implementation of software projects. Collaboration skills are developed
as work is performed in small teams.
Java, an object-oriented programming language, is the
vehicle of exploration. Prerequisite: CSE 131 or equivalent.
Times and Places:
- The course calendar shows the schedule for this course.
- Lecture takes place in Louderman 458.
- Studio sessions and labs take place in Urbauer 222 (labs A to C),
Urbauer 218 (labs D to F), and Whitaker 132 (labs G to I).
- See the TA schedule for help session times.
WUTexter was written by myself and some 132 students.
