If you're interested in majoring in Computer Science, either in McCormick or Weinberg, or Computer Engineering in McCormick, you should read about the CS and CE Curricula in the EECS Undergraduate Study Manual.

If you're a Ph.D. student (or prospective Ph.D. student) in Computer Science or Computer Engineering interested in working with me, please read the relevant sections (Systems, Computer Engineering) of the EECS Graduate Study Manual. Please note that the Systems section was changed in 2016 to remove material that I believe is vital, including expectations I have of any CS Systems Ph.D. students working with me.

If you're an undergraduate or MS student interested in research experience through independent study or REU, feel free to contact me or one of my graduate students. You should have some background in at least one of architecture, operating systems, distributed systems, networks, parallel systems, programming languages, compilers, or databases. Undergrads are also welcome in my graduate courses, as are MS students, the latter typically after a short interview.
