UW is offering Certificate Programs in several topics that UW undergraduates can take as part of their normal credit load this summer. These Certificates consist of two to four courses and will give a good foundation in the various subjects listed below. The Summer Certificate in Business Essentials may be of special interest to engineering students because it provides:
· Opportunity to cover the major business pillars of knowledge in one summer
· Integrated curriculum with capstone business plan project, unique among UW business courses
· Ten, 6 of which are Individual & Society Area of Knowledge (I&S)
· Interaction with students from diverse perspectives since it is open to any major (except business majors)
· Tuesday/Thursday schedule which fits well with MWF engineering courses
· Access to industry professionals who now have adjunct or lecturer appointments with Foster School of Business
Come to information meetings Wednesday May 1 and/or Thursday, June 6, Mary Gates Hall, Room 420, 3;30 to 5:00 pm and meet the instructors and program managers for all programs. Find out which series of courses is the right fit for your educational goals and career aspirations.

Want to learn more about the 2013-2014 animation course series? Attend an info session!
Paul G. Allen Center room 691 (Gates Commons, 6th floor)
Computer Science & Engineering (CSE) and the Animation Research Labs invite you to an information session on the Animation Production undergraduate course sequence at UW Seattle. This sequence runs from Summer 2013 (A term) through Spring 2014. The Summer course, Story Design for Computer Animation, is highly recommended but optional.
The Animation Capstone culminates in a very professional and exciting collaboratively produced digital short film, similar in process to Disney/Pixar and Dreamworks productions. Examples of previous award winning films produced in the dept will be shown and questions regarding applications and admission, etc. will be addressed. We look forward to seeing you there. Light refreshments will be served.
FYI, the tentative teaching schedule has been posted for the 2013-2014 academic year.
We don’t have instructors listed yet and we will not likely have that information until late this quarter, but hopefully this will help you plan your courses to some degree. It is of course tentative which means subject to change. We don’t know exactly how this will play out until we finalize any possible hiring decisions.
Program on Technology Commercialization
How can we most efficiently move technology from the academic laboratory to product and market? The revised Program on Technology Commercialization (PTC) course sequence is designed to provide students with the fundamentals surrounding this process and suggest how we can most efficiently do this translational process.
Spring Quarter’s Introductory Course (BIOEN 504 – Wednesdays & Fridays, 3:30-5:20pm, Electrical Engineering Building 125) will feature outstanding guest lecturers from the local entrepreneurial community sharing knowledge, expertise, and personal experiences as they relate to topics such as:
• Business opportunity (risk)
• Entrepreneurship vs. intrapreneurship
• Selling your business idea (communication)
• How to start and run a company
• IP and product development
• Ethics in business and R&D
• Marketing, sales and distribution
• Networking with industry experts
• Developing nations — huge opportunities
All lectures are open to the entire CoE community. Please join us this Wednesday and Friday (4/10/13 and 4/12/13) as we learn about “Financial Statements for Start Ups” from Foster School of Business Dean Jim Jiambalvo and “Intrapreneurship” from Lonnie Edelheit, former CTO of GE.
Rather than continuously spam you, please subscribe to the PTCI listserv at https://mailman1.u.washington.
In case this might change anything these courses will definitely be offered this summer (although I don’t yet have final times).
CSE 456 and 464 (animation)
CSE 351 and 390A
CSE 154 web programming
*CSE 421, we’re not sure yet
I finally have word on what we will offer this summer. We will definitely offer:
CSE 142, 143, 154 (web programming), 333 (systems programming) and 351 (hardware/software interface) and 390A the one credit course that goes with 351.
Additionally, there will be two animation courses, CSE 456 and 464 (one A term and the other B term) and we *might* offer CSE 421, that is still pending. I should know by a week from today (by the start of spring quarter) if we’ll offer 421 this summer.
If you don’t see the course name/number above, then we are not offering it this summer. If you see it on the time schedule and not on this list, again, then it will not be offered.
Just a reminder that STAT 391 has been re-vamped a bit to match our new curriculum better. You would ideally have CSE 312 completed before taking 391. Additionally, note that Stat 391 can be applied to a math minor, but you have to email the math advisors to have the exception put into the UW system. There are still a couple of spaces left in stat and it also counts as a CSE core course and CSE Senior elective.
