Mechanism to the Mind: An XR Hackathon
Mechanism to the Mind: An XR Hackathon is a 48-hour event from 6 pm on October 26th to 6 pm on October 28th, during which teams of students and faculty from the CSU system will have a chance to create an XR project and interact with distinguished guests from the XR community. Each guest will give a workshop or presentation exploring their ideas on how the body interfaces with new concepts of reality, and how these mechanics change our perception of ourselves and the world. "XR" stands for cross reality, and is an all-encompassing term that includes virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (MR), 360 video, and other immersive projects.

New Department Server
We are in the process of changing over to a new department server, Odin, for the Fall 2018 term. Some services may have intermittent issues during the transition. If you notice any persistent issues, please let Steve Garcia know.

Existing students without an Odin account can see Steve to get an Odin account. Students are responsible for transferring their own files over from Sleipnir to Odin. posted aug 2018

Fall 2018 Schedule Changes
Several schedule changes have been made to Fall 2018, particularly for the CMPS courses. The following is a summary of the changes (this list will be updated throughout the summer as changes occur):

  • CMPS 2240: One section has been cancelled due to low enrollment. The 10:00am section is now the only available section for Fall.
  • CMPS 3600: A new section has been added on MW 2:30-3:45pm and Th 1:00-3:30pm.
  • CMPS 3620: The time has been changed to MW 4:00-5:15pm and Tu 4:00-6:30pm. This causes a time conflict with CMPS 3500. Both courses will be offered in Spring 2019, so anyone who wanted to take both this year will need to choose one for Fall and take the other in Spring.
  • CMPS 3650: This course has been cancelled due to low enrollment.
  • ECE 4380+4381: The course times have been determined. The lab will meet Tuesdays 4:00-6:30pm and the lecture will meet Fridays 10:00am-12:30pm.
Students enrolled in these courses have been sent further details to their email address. If you need assistance adjusting your schedule, please email your faculty advisor in the department or your staff advisor at the NSME Student Center. posted jul 2018
