Proposed Information (Fill in for changes and new courses) Course Prefix and Number CS 5002 Course Title Credit Hours Prerequisites Description (or Proposed Degree Requirements) An introduction to fundamental operating systems concepts. Emphasis will be on the interfaces supplied by operating systems. Topics include; job scheduling, memory management, and process interactions. III. Justification The program targets working professionals in the computing field whom may or may not hold an undergraduate degree in computer science. The students not holding an undergraduate degree in computer science are required to take foundational type courses. The foundational type courses do not count toward the degree, but rather are used to give the student some “under graduate” level knowledge in essential areas lacking. Students required to take foundation courses must complete the courses with a B-grade or better before taking the regular graduate courses. The credit hours for the foundation courses do not count towards the degree total of 36. The cost for the foundation courses will be an additional cost on top of MSACS program tuition; however, the course cost will be at the regular tuition rate, a non-premium graduate tuition rate. The prerequisites for these foundation courses are program admission. IV.
