Happy New Year and welcome to the UNT Department of Computer Science and Engineering for the Spring 2013 semester! Among a number of exciting things happening this semester is National Engineers Week February 18-22. Please participate in the Career Fair on February 21, where a lot of companies will be searching for interns and full-time employees. Now is also the time to be applying to Graduate Schools for M. S. and Ph. D. programs, including ours (UNT application deadline is February 15). I would be glad to talk with anyone interested in furthering their studies at UNT or elsewhere. Please check this website and the student email newsletters that we'll be sending out during the semester for information on other planned activities this semester. Good luck with all of your classes!
