The Computer Science Committee is dedicated to helping students taking CS at TAMS succeed academically through ensuring comprehension of course information and provision of related supplementary materials. We facilitate one on one tutoring and assistance by pairing students up with our volunteer tutors who are all experienced in resolving any CS related issues. We will also host review sessions for every test and assignment where the committee heads will be going over general topics and providing an overview of important concepts. Finally, we'll be providing detailed notes / videos on the various topics in CS, as well as encouragement to not give up (as you will need during your second semester of CS). Feel free to reach out to any one of us at any time for help!

ABOUT THE COURSE:

Computer science is the second track that TAMS offers for their incoming juniors to choose from, and consists of two semesters of CS related courses plus lab. Unlike Biology, the class is taken with UNT students, and can sometimes have up to 200 people in the lecture hall at once.

In addition to the lecture, the CS track also requires a 3 hour weekly Lab section which will often serve to reinforce the class material of that week. The lab sections are relatively small, with only around 20 people, and held off campus at Discovery Park. All labs, exams, and homework is expected to be done on the linux servers provided by the University, and thus exams will also take place during the lab section instead of lecture.

Computer science may seem intimidating especially to new coders, but if you pay attention during lecture, go over the powerpoints, and understand the material in the lab, then you’ll be able to breeze through the course. If you have any questions or want supplemental information, we highly recommend you use the resources found on our website for extra practice and review.

Meet Your Committee Heads!

NATHAN BRITO

Computer Science Committee Head

¡Hola y’all! I’m Nathan Raúl Brito and I will be one of y’all’s computer science committee heads this year! I am also the committee head of CSO’s Tech-Ed and an NACRA exec. I also like to work out, play basketball, listen to music (kanye west is such an inspiration), and sometimes watch anime. If you have a question about computer science, feel free to message me via email or messenger. Can’t wait to meet y’all this year!

KANE DONG

Computer Science Committee Head

Salutations all, I'm Kane and I will be your other CS tutor for this year. I also run the TAMS discord server (https://discord.gg/rkMdgTvm6j), which has over 600 members already! If I'm not doing school stuff or college apps grind, I like to play Destiny 2 or World of Tanks. Apart from gaming, you can find me at Pohl scaling the climbing wall or playing badminton at the courts. If you need help with anything, just message me at any time either on Messenger or Discord and I'll respond. Can't wait to meet all of you!
