CPSC 7399: Selected Topic - Cloud Computing Security
This course emphasizes on security, privacy and the associated efficiency issue with cloud computing through extensive discussion on the cutting edge research papers. The goal of this course is to familiarize students with the basic concepts and models of cloud computing, major security/privacy challenges, state-of-the-art security solutions, performance and efficiency issues associated with cloud. This course will also educate students how to identify security issues and approach solutions for these issues with techniques such as cryptography.

CPSC 1375: Programming I
This course can be succinctly described as an introduction to elementary programming and problem-solving techniques via the C++ programming language. After a brief survey of the history of computing, the course will heavily focus on programming. Major topics will include: loop control, decision-making, input/output, files, constants and variables, character and numeric information, data types and expressions, strings, one- and multi-dimensional arrays, functions and procedures, and introduction to record structures.

CPSC 4392: Capstone Project
The objective of this course is to prepare students for the next step in their careers, whether that step is in the working world or graduate school. Student will compile (or prepare) a porfolio of their complete undergraduate work as well as any professional work accomplished while in school, and will create a capstone programming project to demonstrate their "cumulative" expertise in pursuing a career in computer science.
