CMSE 201 Introduction to Computational Modeling (4) ENGR
Course is in Python. Missing C++ & Matlab. This course can be posted as ENGR 100-level 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.
