COMP 490: Independent Project

Credit hours

Variable (1-6)


Previous agreement of a Computer Science faculty supervisor


An independent project in computer science or related disciplines, under the supervision of a member of faculty.

Students may not register themselves. A request with the exact semester and number of units must be forwarded by the faculty supervisor, after an agreement is made with the student.

A good feature of an independent project is that you can make your transcript show a course title that is specific to your particular project. Fill out the Request for Course Title form, and get the signature of your supervisor and the gpd.
