CMSE  201  Introduction to Computational Modeling (4)  ENGR
Course is in Python. Missing C++ & Matlab. This course can be posted as ENGR 100level departmental credit (ENGR 101X). Recommendation to the Chief Program Advisor (CPA) to count as ENGR 101, but not as a prerequisite for EECS 280. Not recommended to count as ENGR 101 for EECS students. Students should consult with their program advisor regarding degree requirements.

CSE  220  Programming in C (3)  EECS
For students who take this and plan to take UM EECS 280, please study differences between C and C++ on your own, to be prepared. Credit for only one: EECS 183 or ENGR 101. Taken together, CSE 220 (3) + EGR 102 (2) = ENGR 101 (4cr).

183  3  051722  Add  
CSE  231  Introduction to Programming I  In Python (4)  ENGR
Can be ENGR 101(4cr) until 12/31/20. Will be updated to ENGR 100level dept. for anyone taking the course after 12/31/20. Course is in Python. Missing C++ and Matlab. Student should learn those independently as they may be needed in later classes.

CSE  331  Algorithms and Data Structures (3)  EECS
There is no preevaluation for EECS 280 or EECS 281 at UM. AFTER taking the course, the student may request evaluation for EECS 280 or EECS 281 equivalence (note that equivalence is rarely granted). The eval will involve an interview, test, and/or programming assignment. Contact ugadmin@eecs.umich.edu for more info. on that procedure
