CMPSC  122  Intermediate Programming (3)  EECS
Can transfer to EECS 183* (3cr) if needed. Otherwise, can be EECS 200level dept. credit. There is no preevaluation for EECS 280 or EECS 281 at UM. AFTER taking the course, current students 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.
