Data Mining and Content Analysis (CSE 305)

The ability to mine data and analyze content has become a key competitive edge for companies. Increasingly, these are skills and knowledge that everyone needs to have, not just a few specialists in analytics. UW is a world leader in this area, and we would like input from industry on where the biggest problems and opportunities are; which research directions would be most useful; what they would like our students to come equipped with; and how we can develop more productive interactions between industry and the department in this area.

Undergraduate Education (CSE 691)

The department is considering a broad reorganization of the CSE curriculum to accomodate a fifth year Master's program and to modernize what we teach. How well are we doing with our current approach - are students missing important concepts or skills? What is the material that every CSE graduate should see? What are the new topics that should be added to an undergraduate "core" (and what old topics should be removed to make room for them)? How should a fifth year program be organized so that students get maximal value from spending an extra year in the department.
