Teach computer and information science courses for the undergraduate and graduate programs for the Khoury College of Computer Sciences.
Master's degree with industry experience required; Ph.D. in computer science or related fields preferred.
Mobile App Development: This project- oriented course examines the principles of mobile application design and development. Students will learn application development on the Android platform. Topics will include memory management; user interface design; user interface building; input methods; data handling; network techniques and URL loading; and, finally, specifics such as use of mobile sensing such as GPS and accelerometers. Students are expected to design and develop a professional-quality mobile application that addresses a real-world problem in an innovative way. Coursework will include project conception, design, implementation, and pilot testing of mobile phone software applications, using health applications as the target domain.
Foundations of Software Engineering: This course covers software life cycle models (waterfall, spiral, and so forth), domain engineering methods, requirements analysis methods (including formal specifications), software design principles and methods, verification and testing methods, resources and schedule estimation for individual software engineers, component-based software development methods and architecture, and languages for describing software processes. Includes a project where some of the software engineering methods (from domain modeling to testing) are applied in an example.
Computer Systems: This course will cover all the basics of operating systems: program loading, context switching, threads and synchronization, virtual memory, and block devices and file systems. The course will also cover more advanced topics, such as operating system security and virtualization. This course will be project centric, with students building significant components of an operating system from scratch.
Information Retrieval: The course provides an introduction to information retrieval systems and different approaches to information retrieval. Topics covered include evaluation of information retrieval systems; retrieval, language, and indexing models; file organization; compression; relevance feedback; clustering; distributed retrieval and metasearch; probabilistic approaches to information retrieval; web retrieval; filtering and recommendation systems; cross-language IR; multimedia IR; and machine learning for information retrieval.
