A new semester begins…

7 September, 2009 § 2 Comments

Last Wednesday marked the first day of classes for the Fall semester at Michigan State University. This semester, I will be taking two courses, CSE 872: Advanced Computer Graphics and CSE 881: Data Mining.

CSE 872: Advanced Computer Graphics

This course is taught by Dr. Yiying Tong and is split in two halves. The first half covers general concepts in rendering, geometric modeling and animation, as well as the basic and intuitive mathematical and geometric tools commonly used in the field. The second half will cover recent research results, ranging from mesh processing, to simulation (fluid, elastic objects), to non-photorealistic rendering.

CSE 881: Data Mining

This course is taught by Dr. Pang-Ning Tan. The key objectives of this course are two-fold: (1) to teach the fundamental concepts of data mining and (2) to provide hands-on experience in applying the data mining concepts to real-world applications. The core topics to be covered in this course include classification, clustering, association analysis, and anomaly detection.

By the end of this semester, I will have 40% of my credits towards my Masters degree in Computer Science.

    Hey Hey Jared,

    I had Dr. Tan for Databases (CSE 450 I think). Databases are really cool; but unfortunately it feels like learning another computer language. All my database queries are very simple queries and I do wonder about the necessity to learn the more complicated ones.

    Nope CSE 452 🙂
