Meeting adjourned at 12:00 p.m.


Policy for Project Supervising MS Computer Engineering and MS Software Engineering students demonstrate their cumulating academic experience through masters projects. It is imperative for the program directors and project supervisors to assess student-learning capabilities during each phase of the project life cycle.

Quality assurance should be performed on all aspects of the projects, such as topic selection, team forming, supervisor qualification, supervisor engagement, student contributions, project artifacts, oral presentations, and written reports. The quality assurance process is described in following roles and responsibility sections.

Roles

1. For each masters project there is one primary supervisor guiding the student(s) along, and two distinct levels of follow-up and review – the co-supervisor and the program director.

2. A supervisor may be a faculty member or a professional affiliated with an appropriate organization or corporation providing the students with a project. The supervisor must have at least a masters degree and be approved by the Department Chair or his/her designee.

3. A co-supervisor is a full-time faculty member of the department identified by the program director in consultation with the project supervisor. A program director can’t serve as the co-supervisor for a project of the respective program.

Responsibilities

4. The supervisor and the co-supervisor are jointly responsible for the quality of the students’ project learning experience and the timely guidance and follow-up with the students.

5. The supervisor and co-supervisor team will meet at least three times per semester to review and evaluate the project progress and quality.

6. The supervisor and co-supervisor team will jointly sign all project documents (e.g., abstract, plan proposal, report, etc.) as required.

7. Based on input from the supervisor and co-supervisor team and his/her own evaluation of the students’ achievements the program director will assign the final grade for each student.

8. The program director reviews the performance of the project supervisors and co-supervisors and reports to the Department Graduate Studies Committee and the Department Chair.

Incentives

9. Supervisors and co-supervisors may be provided with professional support or other incentives for their tasks as determined by department policy.

Effective

10. This policy applies to all master projects started fall 2009 or later.

—–  [Catalog] Completing Requirements for the MS - Software Engineering

… To meet the requirements for the MS - Software Engineering, a student must complete 30 units of 200-level courses with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better. No undergraduate course counts towards the master's degree unless approved by the graduate advisor. At least 24 units must be 200-level software engineering courses. Students may further their degree by adding internships (CMPE 298I) to their program of study. Four areas of specialization are defined in Software Engineering: Enterprise Software Technologies, Software Systems Engineering, Networking Software, and Cloud Computing & Virtualization. Details can be found on the department web site.

  [Department Website] Cloud Computing & Virtualization The Cloud Computing & Virtualization specialization prepares students to understand the emerging technologies of Cloud Computing and Virtualization, their principles, modeling, analysis, design, deployment, and industry-oriented applications. Major solution architectures and enabling technologies are covered. Students are prepared for technical careers in developing applications and providing services that run on a distributed network using virtualized resources and enables customers to access computing resources as needed.

Cloud Computing & Virtualization Specialization Overview The Cloud Computing & Virtualization specialization prepares students to understand the emerging technologies of Cloud Computing and Virtualization, their principles, modeling, analysis, design, deployment, and industry-oriented applications.

SJSU CMPE Graduate Curriculum Committee - Meeting Minutes on 4/30/2012

Meeting Time: Date: 4/30/2012 Time: 11:0am – 12:30pm

Attendees: Lee Chang, Len Wesley, Dan Harkey, Magadlini Eriniki, Sigurd Meldal, and Jerry Gao

Absent: Harry Li, Simon Shim Excused: Xiao Su, Donald Hung

Purpose of this meeting:

Discussion topic two course proposals from GE (by Len Wesley)

(a) ENG204 – Computational Analytics For Engineers

(b) ENG240 – Advanced Bioinformatics Computational Laboratory For Engineers

General discussion comments:

- To provide quality education and sustainable delivery of engineering courses in SJSU, it is always important to work with appropriate hosting departments and faculty to set up new courses.

- Basic perception of the role of general engineering with respect to new course and curriculum development: Incubate, don’t duplicate (i.e., areas that are already well setablished in departments should be hosted in those departments)

For ENG204 course proposal, we have the following consensus:

This course proposal addresses some important emergent topics in big data computational analytics. If the course is offered and listed in SJSU degree catalog, it should be offered and listed as a software engineering course in the Computer Engineering Department. The course should be designed so as to address the needs of the MSE degree, as wel as fitting into the structure of other degree programs (such as MS SE). For this term, this course proposal will be withdrawn for further discussion and communication with related CMPE faculty.

The following motion was made by Sigurd for ENG204 course proposal and passed by the Committee:

“CMPE department sets up a task force (Lee Chang, Magdalini Erinaki, and Len Wesley) to work a new CMPE graduate course proposal to address the topics in ENG204 course proposal and support the needs of general engineering students in big data management and computational analysis.”

For ENG240 course proposal, we have the following consensus:

In spite of some comments about the course topics, and pre-requisites in this course proposal, the Committee like to see that this course proposal will be discussed in COE GSC for more comments although some people think it should be offered by Computer Science Department on SJSU Campus.

The committee expressed concern about the introductory nature of the course, and were worried that the courses Engr 220 and (the proposed) Engr 240 were too skills-oriented to be deemd proper graduate degree component courses.
