Computer Science

Dr. Ilhyun Lee
Professor

Dr. Ilhyun Lee is a Professor of Computer Science. He received his Ph.D. degree from Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago, Illinois (1996). He was selected as Who’s Who Among America’s Teachers in 2006. His research interests include developing an Object-Oriented Scheduler in real-time environments. His research results have been published in the Journal of Computational Methods in Science and Engineering, and many refereed conference proceedings of the international computer science conferences sponsored by the well known professional societies such as IEEE, ACM, and ISCA.

Administered by the Department of Mathematical and Computing Sciences within the College of Arts and Sciences. The Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science gives students the opportunity to obtain a thorough understanding of computers and their applications, and in the design and analysis of software and hardware systems for use in scientific and/or business environments.

Faculty in Computer Science may allow transferred credits to count towards a major or a minor in Computer Science. The number of credit hours required, at the upper-level or in total, can not be reduced except by academic petition.

Information Systems

Dr. Haesun Lee
Professor

Dr. Haesun Lee is a Professor of Computer Science. She received her Ph.D. degree from Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago, Illinois (1997). Her primary research interest is on Real Time Systems with particular emphasis on the scheduling real-time tasks with reduced context switches. Dr. Lee has published numerous research papers in many refereed conference proceedings of the international computer science conferences sponsored by the well known professional societies such as IEEE, ACM, and ISCA. Her works also appeared in the Journal of Computational Methods in Science and Engineering, in years 2006, 2009, and 2012. Her recognitions include the 2006 Chancellor’s Council Outstanding Teacher Award.

Administered by the Department of Mathematical and Computing Sciences within the College of Arts and Sciences.

The overall goal of the Information Systems program is to provide its graduates with basic information systems and computing skills. This much is in common with computer science, though the computing skill set is somewhat different. The program is distinguished from computer science in that it provides a background in business skills, including an emphasis on how information systems fit into a modern business organization.

Relationship of Information Systems and Computer Science

It is not possible to double major in information systems and in computer science or to major in information systems and minor in computer science or vice-versa. Students interested in the computer science major with an information systems emphasis may elect to complete the computer science major while completing the essential business core for information systems. This option requires that the mathematics taken follow the requirements of the computer science program and that the general business minor be completed. Interested students should consult with a computer science advisor as early in the program as possible.

Mathematics

Paul Feit, PhD
Dr. Paul Feit is Professor of Mathematics and Coordinator for Mathematics. Dr. Feit received his Bachelors degree from Harvard University and his Ph.D. from Princeton University (1985).

Administered by the Department of Mathematical and Computing Sciences within the College of Arts and Sciences.
