Directed Reading Program
Students will meet at least weekly with a graduate mentor over the course of the term/break to read a computer science textbook.
Structure of the Program
Mentees will be expected to commit at least four hours to their project each week. Mentees will be reimbursed for the cost of their textbook.
Why Should You Participate?
Meetings will enable undergraduate students to study computer science at a deeper level than can be done in a classroom and has several benefits. Primarily, it will introduce the student to the type of learning one is more likely to experience as a graduate student in computer science or as a researcher. Additionally, the mentee is introduced to a computer science topic that may be more advanced or more specialized than traditional coursework.
Who is Eligible?
All students are eligible, but we particularly target upperclassmen (i.e., juniors or seniors) in the computer science or CS + X programs.
If you have any questions about the program, or are wondering how you can be involved, don't hesitate to contact us.
