Course Overview

In this course, students will learn the methodology behind experimental research in computer science. The course will cover topics such as planning a new research project, designing experiments, enabling repeatable research, and effectively presenting your results. It will also provide practice with the four skills critical to being an effective researcher: reading, writing, speaking, and thinking creatively.

Registration is restricted to CS Ph.D. students, but some masters or undergraduate students actively engaged in a research project may be allowed to take the course with the approval of their research advisor and the instructor. Students must already be involved in a research project before the start of the course. New Ph.D. students are particularly encouraged to take the course. Ph.D. students from related disciplines such as ECE may be considered if space allows.
