Computing Skills Workshop (CSW) is a 3-unit required class that ALL incoming undergraduate students take when they arrive on campus. The course is comprised of mostly Carnegie Mellon specific information and helps students understand what resources are available to them and what responsibilities they have as a user in our computing community. Class is held twice/week for 50 min for 1/2 of the semester. There is very little work required outside of class, so students are expected to attend all classes. This course is only offered during the Fall and Spring semesters. There are no test-out opportunities or summer programs. Advanced Placement Computing Courses cannot be credited/substituted for this requirement.
