Minutes of Teaching Committee Meeting 15 February 2002


Present: andrewt (chair), achim, hossam, kenr, lambert, steve, sjha, ignjat, awiggins, bradg, carrollg
Apologies: sowmya

  1. Offering COMP9314 in 02s2 Agreed as staff available and subject very popular.
  2. Do we need to add COMP2920 to joint degrees Agreed that it was not necessary to add COMP2920 to joint degrees except possibly for CS/Commerce. Tim Lambert to investigate if Commerce program includes courses offer suitable professional content.
  3. Should we reject the BE(CE)/MEngSci plan Recommended we reject it because it greatly de-values the Master of Engineering Science. Major problem is that it depends on a distinction between "postgrad" and "undergrad" electives which doesn't exist for COMP courses. Provision of summer projects also problematic.
  4. New course proposal for 02s1 - Algorithms & Complexity Accepted as suitable course and agreed it can be delivered in 02s1. Consideration of its offering on ongoing basis at next TC.
  5. New course proposal for 02s2 - Capacity Planning of Computer Systems and Networks Accepted as suitable course and can run in 02s2 if Bruce Howarth available to deliver it.
  6. New course proposal for 02s2 - Algorithm Engineering Accepted as suitable course. Agreed it can be delivered in 02s1 on a voluntary basis by Hossam. Consideration of its offering on ongoing basis at next TC.
  7. Honour board and Prizes for Top Students Display of list of uni medalist recommended. Selecting best students at intermediate stages for commendation problematic, bradh to investigate further.
  8. 03x1 summer session courses Some discussion but no result.
  9. Any other business.
