does C&EE 105: Technical Communication count as a technical breadth for C&EE? I know that its course number falls in the correct range, but just wanted to double check because it is a writing class. has anyone taken it? how is it?
A class that basically teaches you to dot the i's, cross the t's, and other crap and is upper division. Yea it will count unless the HSSEAS says otherwise.
erm, an acquaintance has been telling me she's enrolled in the MS program for comp sci, and just entered her first quarter of the program this winter. AND didn't have to take the GRE, was just accepted because she's done past work with one of the professors in the CS department during her undergrad career.
this all seems very odd, but then again i have no idea about how grad admissions work at ucla (especially in scientific fields). so, is that possible?
^ She's probably in the ESAP program. A UCLA engineering undergrad who has a high enough GPA, gets letters of recommendation, etc., can apply to this program to become a UCLA engineering grad student immediately upon completing their B.S., bypassing the regular grad application procedure. http://www.seasoasa.ucla.edu/current/esap.html
The only difference between ESAP and the regular graduate application is one fewer LoR, predetermined acceptance, and no GRE test requirement.
For ESAP, you still need to write a SOP, additional essays depending on your department, and 2 LoR. The application you fill out is the same but with slightly fewer requirements. If you would like to qualify for fellowships, you need to take the GRE and write additional statements. All applicants need to pay for the application fee as well, unless financially qualified.
I heard that this only applies (to EE majors) to EE undergrads who apply immidiately after the graduate, is this true?
Qualified ESAP candidates will receive a letter & email about acceptance into the program. This occurs when a student has 3.5+ GPA with 36 or fewer units remaining until graduation.
For EE (and I assume CS/CSE too) students, they will need to apply for the following Fall term after attaining the B.S degree. This is due to course sequencing. Graduate applications are due in the January prior to the Fall term of graduate enrollment.
I'm trying to do a remote login to the seasnet server and whenever I login its giving me this error:
"Windows cannot log you in because your profile cannot be loaded...etc,etc
DETAIL - Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service"
Does anyone know how to fix this so that I can remotely login to seasnet? I have no idea what is wrong.
Also, I'm currently in CS 131 and he wants us to test a java program on landfair.seas.ucla.edu and westholme.seas.ucla.edu. I've never really used the SSH program in the seas labs and I've never really remotely connected, so I'm really new to this. But, can someone describe how I would go about putting a file thats on either one of the seaslab machines or on my home computer into the proper directory to run it from westholme or landfair?
Like, the last project required that we set the path in the seaslab to /usr/local/cs/bin while in the SSH program thing. Once there I was able to run ocaml, but I couldn't figure out a way to make a new file and put my stuff in it since it was just the command prompt window, so it was pretty confusing and I ended up having to manually copy/paste the lines of ocaml into it. Does anyone know a better way to do this remote logging in and working on a remote server so that I can just make my files there and email them to myself and not have to worry about installing java or whatever on my own system?
I know tons of people use remote logins and the SSH program to write their code and test it on the proper machines since those are the machines that they grade them on, so any advice on what to start doing would be great and the process you use to get on the correct system to write code. Thanks for any help.
Has anyone heard of a master's program in UCLA SEAS: Master of Science, Engineering? I believe this (fairly new) program is a distance learning program designed for working professionals with flexibility to design their program of study to fit their professional goals.
I am just wondering how you would compare this program with other master programs in SEAS, in terms of prestige and employers' perspectives...?
But, if you are employer, would you prefer people with MS in EE (just for example, could be any other major) or MS in Engineering? I am talking about being treated as "back door" to UCLA type of thing.... I think Engineering is a more general major than any of the department major in SEAS.... although all master degrees require thesis or a project at the end....
I think a masters in EE is better than general engineering, but it depends on what you want to do with it. For example, if I want to work for Intel as a Silicon Validation Engineer than I would probably want to do a MS in EE specializing in semiconductor device physics and processes.
The UCLA Online Master of Science in Engineering website has contact information. I'd think someone who counsels for that program could answer the questions better than undergraduate students could. Despite saying that, I'll venture an answer. Since most students in the program are being reimbursed by their employers to go for the masters, the employers must think it's valuable. The program has areas of specialization, even if the degree just says M.S. in Engineering.
Exams need not be taken at the university if someone at the worksite is authorized to proctor an exam.
So I'm a CS&E major and I just found out that my cc gave me physics credit. I took this class junior year in high school and I passed out of physics 1a, 1b, and 4al, but not 4bl. So my question is how difficult will the lab be if I hadn't taken a UCLA physics 1b course. It's been two years so the material is a bit rusty but I've learned it before so I figured I can learn it again.
4BL is just busy work, you really don't need to know much theory if any. I took Physics 1B spring quarter my freshman year and only got around to taking 4BL Fall quarter Junior year. It won't be difficult, just time consuming.
