That would mean coming uncomfortably close to failing, and as a result having the past few weeks of constant strain be wasted, for nothing. As someone who took fundies 1 as a non-cs major, I can somewhat understand where you're coming from. Maybe youtube or khan academy could help… but wait, why would anybody make helpful videos when nobody uses Dr. Racket? It is not my wish to offend those who do not agree with my opinion, I only want to make it aware to other students what may lie in store for them, to increase the information that they have access to, and to hopefully help them make better-informed decisions. Looking back, it is very clear why they structured and taught the course the way they did. However, I respect the class too for many reasons (and yes, racket being the language has its good reasons), and I think you shouldn't paint the picture that its a class meant to strengthen the elitist 1% and hold the other 99% down. Surely you could have sacrificed some of your GPA in order to reduce the workload placed on yourself? There are a lot of things I agree with, but also a lot of things I disagree with as well. Hi. You will almost automatically be one of the least knowledgeable people right off that bat, and that puts you at a disadvantage, to say the least. This will be my first post on reddit after lurking for a bit. Please assume paying for either college is no issue. NEU was especially appealing for me because I wanted to take classes online, and it was one of the few at the time that was highly accredited. Much, much harder. This has been really helpful in making my decision. They do not try to welcome in students who are curious about the subject, its all hardcore all the time. in Computer Science, then you've come to the right place! The homework problems were consistently impossible. It is also what I would have wished to hear before the start of the semester. -Coop program, graduating with 1-1.5 years of real world experience is a great benefit to have. The focus on technical skills, like program design and software development, will arm you with a unique perspective to bring to your foundational economics and business management courses. -Larger campus and student body, plenty of opportunities for clubs, sporting events, and other things that are part of the "college experience". Since I'm born and brought up an urban city like Mumbai, my gut feeling is to opt for Northeastern. Fast paced work is inherently ingrained in this field, and is doable but you have to be able to think like a programmer and enjoy working through problems). Make one minor mistake- that you'd definitely catch if you could run the code- and it wrecks your grade in the class no matter how well you do on the assignments. And I’m sure there are exceptions to the rule, but really take some time to think whether you truly are one of the exceptions. No prior programming experience is needed. If you really understand the structure, learning a new language (especially something high level like Python) doesn't take all that much. In OOD you may have to teach yourself how certain Java libraries work. Why not try to ease students in to Computer Science? Surely more people could learn from the same concept discussed in terms of python? A lot of people hate on Racket, but I really think it did help me get a strong grasp on CS fundamentals and program design that has served me well. Any missing prerequisites or NUpath requirements must be taken using computer science or general electives. Northeastern’s PhD program in Computer Engineering offers the opportunity to pursue cutting-edge research in the following areas: computer architecture, parallel computing, fault tolerance, performance analysis and modeling, security, embedded systems, VLSI, algorithms, data mining, testing, machine learning, machine vision and software engineering. I was just a little worried that it is ranked low. But that was the problem with both courses. Not just one assignment, here and there, but nearly every single one. I am currently studying at this institution. I really took advantage of the extensive office hours, and if you find a tutor/TA who gets how you think, it's a huge asset. WIT tuition is on the lower end for private schools on our list and its high graduate salary gives it a favorable ratio of 2.8. Unofficial news and discussion of interest to students, faculty, employees, and neighbors of Northeastern University in Boston, MA. I don't mean this to be offensive, but did you ever consider that maybe CS just isn't for you? I wasn't enthralled by the first semester either, but this is a really melodramatic post. The first quiz was just writing a function that outputted a number (didn't matter what the function did, just had to return a number). "I earned my Bachelor's of Science degree at Northeastern University College of Professional Studies in Boston, Massachusetts. The class definitely moves quickly and the assignments can be tedious, but they start out extremely simple and increase in difficulty. Maybe you think that if you just stick it out a little while longer things will get easier, something will click, the tension will lessen and you’ll have more slack. pretty intiutive imo, sure there are easier ones out there but IMO racket isnt convoluted. It’s just not a good fit for you here. If I could send a letter back in time to my former self, this is what I would have written. Choosing between these two school is tough, they seem very similar in their strengths with pretty weak downsides. Thoughts? Bro it's fundies 1 just follow the design recipe lmao, I took Fundies with no prior programming experience and really enjoyed it. Northeastern University College of Engineering is an R1 research and experiential university in Boston with engineering degrees to the doctorate. It was a semester almost entirely composed of stress, anxiety, and fear. IMO Fundies is definitely not for people interested in learning more about programming without the desire to go further in the curriculum. As a professor in CCIS who came from a top 5 school, CS is not for you. -Recognition is great for getting internships and jobs. Please assume paying for either college is no issue. But I ask you to consider if that is due to "filthy and damaging lies", or maybe you are just not made for CS. Cookies help us deliver our Services. It's a little ridiculous to expect first semester CS students to know the exact solution to the problems on their first attempt, It is meant for those who are curious about Computer Science yet unsure, those who are intrigued because they’ve heard about how useful or lucrative knowing CS can be, how much they’ve heard that “everyone should learn to program,”. For Fundies, the prerequisite is be damn good at programming already, and for discretes, it’s have a firm grasp of advanced higher mathematical concepts, not just Algebra. College is a strange transition and I do think CCIS makes it especially difficult (other majors' freshman curriculum is usually a lot easier, but yeah, cs freshmen classes are designed as weeding out classes.) It was a semester almost entirely composed of stress, anxiety, and fear. It seems to be a lot more approachable than fundies, has a prof. who seems invested in students really learning, still has ties with the cs department, and could be an interesting intro class to ease into as an experiment in cs before jumping straight into fundies. And who knows, maybe programming would have been a good fit for you. I have narrowed my two college choices down to either Northeastern or UW-Madison for a degree in computer science and business administration, but am having trouble deciding between the two. I do think it's possible to do very well in the class without a ton of programming knowledge - but as an engineering student I'm also used to working really hard in classes, and you'll probably have to do that for fundies 1. Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts. and this slightly off topic and many may roll their eyes at this... but dont do it for the money. From what I heard with the other sections, they did end up with a good bit of busywork (see: Piazza project). I have narrowed my two college choices down to either Northeastern or UW-Madison for a degree in computer science and business administration, but am having trouble deciding between the two. I know I certainly wish they would have been. Perhaps they’re just catering to what they perceive is the skill level of the majority of class. So there will be more competition, etc. -Love the location, urban feel with plenty of nature. Trust me, it only gets harder. I personally started in CCIS, a big reason for money, but i also had intrinsic motivations. I say follow your gut. and in many ways i think this is a very good way to learn. Northeastern University’s Master of Science in Computer Science is designed to prepare students for a variety of careers in computer science. It's a new class I signed up for that is supposed to be "programming with data", but the professor describes in as "cs 0" (aka before fundies 1 and 2), and most of what we've done so far is go over very basic programming concepts and started looking at python. The undergraduate degrees are split into Computer Science, Computer Networking, and Computer Information Systems, each of which has two semesters of co-op work required. CS isn't a highly-paid field for nothing. My experience as a Computer Science major at Northeastern’s School of Computer and Information Science, was, to put it mildly, awful. Thread 100k in loans for Northeastern University Computer Science degree??? The kids coming out of that class can hack together some programs and APIs, but they understand very little in terms of actual computer science.). In my opinion, such claims are filthy and damaging lies. Right? When you're starting with a programming language that none of the students have used before (and is likely very different than any language they might have previously seen), it actually puts students on an interestingly level playing field (both those who have and haven't programmed before). Although only two of my four classes were Computer Science, they probably ended up consisting of 85% of my total workload for the semester. And that leads to another note: if you come into either course with little to no prior experience, it is almost guaranteed that the majority of the rest of the class will already have vast troves of prior knowledge at their disposal. I don't think that the prereqs are falsely advertised (unless things have changed), but I really think that you dont need any programming experience prior to fundies (it may even help) and i dont remember too much about discreet but it wasnt too hard and i didnt really use anything above alg 2 probably... also sometimes i didnt follow along too well in the lectures, and the textbook DID help. This program has a way of weeding out those who are only attracted to the salary or "want to play videogames for a job.". oh, wait…. Bachelor’s degrees have become much more common amongst workers in recent years. You go as far in a school as you want to. I later learned from one of the department’s Teaching Assistant that the absurd difficulty of the homework was due to the CCIS’s attempt to “experiment” with the course curriculum, and that they were experiencing growing pains and still trying to work out the kinks. The courses only get much harder so yeah if you dont do well in the intro classes, either drop out of the major or just do a minor or just drop that minor as well and make sure you at least pass. Northeastern -Location in Boston. ... the College of Computer and Information Science; created by phyzome CCIS/2011 a community for 9 years. At our regional campuses, located in industry and tech hubs, Khoury College offers strong academic programs in vibrant cities to live, work, and study. Madison is a big research university, and it felt like there was more attention on that side of things than on undergraduate teaching. Just take a look at the corresponding textbook chapter… also written by that professor, and basically just a rehashing of the lecture. And I don’t mean any offense by that; these people have dedicated much of their time and energy to the pursuit of programming and they definitely deserve the knowledge they’ve acquired. I'd argue that having fundies in python/js/etc would make the playing field way more unfair, since people familiar with programming are likely to have used it. I know a lot of people who had programming experience coming in, but still found fundies difficult because of the functional programming aspect and just being in a language so unlike what's popular out there. Purchasing. Northeastern University is a great institution nationwide, and historically known for its Business major and academia. Perhaps you don’t understand the way a professor explains a particular topic? Students will complete most of the requirements of a business major, including macroeconomics and microeconomics, while also focusing on technical skills like program design, software development, computer organization, systems and networks, theories of computation, … - Racket isn't proprietary, it's FOSS.). I came to Northeastern with what I thought was a passion and curiosity for Computer Science. When I tried to gage my preparedness for the midterm exams all I could think about was my inability to confidently complete any single assignment. From what I've heard, GE1111 is based in a much more practical goal rather than theoretical building blocks so this might be a better option for "everyone should learn to code.". In all concentrations, up to one Research course can be substituted with advisor approval. I came to Northeastern with what I thought was a passion and curiosity for Computer Science. I have been in Boston for 18 years and it's pretty stale, but I still great (even its winters!). As a Northeastern student, you have access to exclusive educational discounts for new Apple and Dell computers. (P.S. The nation’s first computer science college, established in 1982, Khoury College has grown in size, diversity, degree programs, and research excellence. Maybe you had such a terrible experience because you were not able to work in the fast paced world that CS is (that is not exclusive to fundies 1. I ended up being a tutor/TA for Fundies 1 for 5 semesters, and interestingly, some of the students who struggled the most were experienced programmers who refused to change the way they thought about programming to adapt to a functional language. PengsPhils Forum Champion Northeastern, Forum Champion Math/Computer Science 4237 replies 34 threads Forum Champion April 2014 @Nova , I think I like CC enough that I will be around here (this board and a few others) when I am in college, and I am attending Northeastern next year and am a CS major who has self-studied a lot. Sorry that CS wasn't for you, but consider that maybe you were an outlier rather than laying all of the blame on CCIS. I’m sure you would like things to be different. Northeastern University’s Align Master’s in Computer Science (CS) program provides a direct path to an MS in Computer Science and a high-demand, rewarding career—for non-computer science degree holders with no previous programming experience. It's a very difficult field and just something that you will have to adjust to. Fundies is a class meant to teach you core concepts & how to think while programming, and it's probably better that it's in a language that doesn't have a lot of examples so that you can figure it out on your own. Oh. For me, Northeastern felt a lot more focused on undergrads. I ended up doing a CS minor and am now in a CS PhD program. I was accepted to both Northeastern and UMass for CS(2023), and both schools have very reputable programs. I also really don't see how OP thinks that you need prior programming experience to do well in fundies. Get out now, while you can still switch to another course that will be a more rewarding and less agonizing use of your time. (SGA official page.) By using our Services or clicking I agree, you agree to our use of cookies. IMO, and i've been told this, it sometimes just comes naturally to people: the ability to think logically. Thank you so much. The class around me felt inclusive of my kind, and while yes it was very hard, yes I spent a lot of time on it, I feel like I grew a lot out of the experience. The computer science and business combined major delivers a technical degree with a strong grounding in business. © 2018 Housing Authority of the Seminole Nation of Oklahoma. Elective courses in machine learning, databases, distributed systems, networks and security, and software engineering allow you to tailor your degree to your unique interests. And that’s where the wonderful logic of CCIS comes into play. this is just my 2cents on life advice but whats the point of doing something you don't like... just to continue on doing something you don't like? This is not what I wanted to hear from a program that has been around for years, from a field that has been established for decades, at an institution where I have to pay a private school tuition. Computer Engineering. There are 300,000 college students in the area and a vibrant city outside of college stuff. Master of Science in Computer Science (MSCS) Northeastern University’s Master of Science in Computer Science is designed to prepare students for a variety of careers in computer science. Fundies 1 explicitly says on its course webpage that no prior programming experience is required. Both courses are taught with no expectation of prior CS experience and can even hurt those with experience because they have to solve problems in ways that they have never thought of before (functional programming). If you look at any of the top programs, you'll see that they don't ease you into the subject - it's all sink or swim. I'd rather be in Boston than a typical college town where your only options are to party or do homework (as I've heard from my friends in "college towns"). It can be hard for the reasons you listed to get outside resources for the class because racket isn't used in industry of course. Although only two of my four classes were Computer Science, they probably ended up consisting of 85% of my total workload for the semester. The Bachelor of Science in Computer Science & Business Administration delivers a technical degree with a strong grounding in business. If this is the case, then my suggestion to you is learn it on your own, because Northeastern is definitely not the place where you go to learn to code. And in some ways, it’s not entirely the department’s fault that their courses are so difficult. It's Boston. CCIS teaches you how to design programs, not how to be able to write small scripts or become a professional a code monkey. Most of those are aimed at grad program rankings anyway (and even then, they don't account for specific sub areas, like nirtheastern's really strong programming languages research). It does not and cannot sympathize with the struggling beginner, simply because it was never designed to. Complaining that it's convoluted after suggesting javascript and C++, Complaining that a class with no prerequisite programming background didn't pick a language according to likely programmer familiarity. Northeastern’s MS in Computer Science through the Align program combines core coursework in program design, computer systems, and software development. I'm from Wisconsin, my parents met while at Madison, and I ended up at Northeastern. The Best Colleges for Computer Science ranking is based on key statistics and student reviews using data from the U.S. Department of Education. UW-Madison -Great CS program, probably better than NEU's for learning. I will acknowledge that there are flaws about how they teach fundies 1. What do you think are effective strategies for success in CCIS? I've heard it said (and I personally think it's true too) that you learn the most when doing and writing code in projects yourself, so personally I think teaching students a "useful" language they can play with and use moving forward on their own ideas would have been more helpful for an intro course. Starting college, while perhaps a natural progression for some, is for many a huge transition from one’s previous life in High School. I guess if you really want to tailgate and darty, then NEU isn't your best choice? It's co-op, and in CS you can get some great paying, bad ass co-ops. It's not like they expect you to know anything coming in. I immediately started disagreeing with your post when you started portraying CCIS as an elitist institution for those who have 5+ years of prior experience. if you come into either course with little to no prior experience, it is almost guaranteed that the majority of the rest of the class will already have vast troves of prior knowledge at their disposal. I’m an admitted student and NEU is one of my top choices for next year. Adding to this: I took the course last semester and am a tutor this semester. Note: The following content reflects the views and experiences of me, as an individual student, and therefore contains opinion rather than fact. In the industry, your advisor could ask you to spend a few hours familiarizing yourself with a programming language so you can work on a project in it. Although only two of my four classes were Computer Science, they probably ended up consisting of 85% of my total workload for the semester. But, if you are a high school student, undergrad, or adult learning more about Northeastern as a prospective college for a B.S. Computer science as a discipline draws its inspiration from mathematics, logic, science, and engineering. CCIS at neu is a hard program so be sure that is what you wanna do. Hi. However, I feel like there are a lot of factors that contribute to this disillusionment (namely, being a freshman in college, and what other people have mentioned) but you're singly blaming it on your two CS classes. Also, I wouldn't look much at CS specific rankings for undergrad programs. Thank you! Disregarding the cost, Northeastern seems to offer an overall better undergrad CS program. I am near certain that there will be people who disagree with my opinion, maybe even passionately, and to those people I would like to say that you are more than entitled to your own thoughts and beliefs. Harsh, but true. I do think that the intro classes are weeding out classes, but rightfully so. Luckily the exams for the most part turned out to be slightly easier than the assignments, which is why I was able to pass, but I left both classes drained of whatever “academic vigor” I once had, still unsure of what exactly I learned in those two and a half months of unending struggle. Also, I had no problem getting involved in research early on as an undergrad. What I heard from any professionals that I spoke to prior to choosing Northeastern is that their companies love the coops. After Object Oriented Design, people seem to really get in the "groove" of CCIS, so I wouldn't discourage anyone who is seriously considering CS as a career. Additionally, ranking is pretty much bullshit. But I also think it has to do with you getting used to the fast pace of college and having more parts of cs that can get you excited. I think I was hoping for something a little more practical and tangible than Dr. Racket -which might be great for learning concepts, but cant really be applied to anything in the real world directly. What Computer Science at Northeastern does is take experienced and talented programmers and makes them more experienced and talented. Sure, you'll get stressed over the workload, life circumstances, exam periods, etc - but if an absurdly difficult problem in itself stresses you out (especially when you're given things like the design recipes to break them down into simpler problems) then perhaps you don't have the mentality to succeed in a technical field. Perhaps changing your perspective and realizing how your education is a journey with its ups and downs is a better path that being so closed minded. Social scene in Boston is amazing, co-op or not. Flawless plan, right? The coops are generally smart and capable. Keep in mind you can still attend many "college" parties at other colleges near NEU. Turns out no. I feel the need to reply to this because I fear that you are painting a picture that is not truly representative of the CCIS freshman year and will scare off students who come to this subreddit (many of whom are CCIS; stereotypically reddit is full of tech people) looking for advice from current students. Why not take the students who aren’t great at programming, yet could one day be, who may already have a little background knowledge with some extremely common, well-known, and familiar language like python, javascript, or C++, and teach them a course entirely dependent on Dr. Racket, a completely unfamiliar, convoluted, and proprietary language that resembles none of the previously mentioned ones and has virtually no real world application outside academia? Press J to jump to the feed. I received either an A or B in both CS classes, and to that one might respond, well why did you work so hard then? A computer science minor is designed to provide the computer science skills and know-how you need to succeed in today’s highly digital world. This is honestly normal for CS. There's a reason why Northeastern's CS program has a near 100% job placement rate. -Research is one of the big selling points of UWM, but doesn't seem to be as big of a deal in the CS department especially in the undergraduate realm. News and discussion of interest to students, faculty, employees, and neighbors of Northeastern University in Boston, MA. That way of thinking is wildly u productive and just not true. Northeastern's strong points lead to a more successful future and career - co-op, location, connections. i believe the author of the textbook is mathias and he wasnt my prof. and i also didnt think racket was a very confusing language at all. Before you know it, the pace of the course will accelerate so much that you’ll wish you had switched out when the first traces of doubt began to appear. Northeastern. I look back on my first semester with regret, regret at the amount of suffering I willingly subjected myself to.
