Hi everyone,

I've been trying to get hold of anyone who knows even a little about this to no avail. Probably just the wrong time of year I guess. I am trying to register for 04545, BSc Hons Computer Science but I cannot find the course-specific brochure. I would like to register for these modules for 2009:

COS408D DATASTRUCTURES AND ALGORITHM
COS416D THEORY OF PROGRAM LANGUAGES
COS451G ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE 1
INF417N SOFTWARE ENGINEERING
INF431L INFORMATION SECURITY

Assuming the general admission requirements are met, is there anything wrong with my choices? Any conflicts, etc.? I will obviously have to do some more next year but are these OK as a start? I was told by the call centre that there are no module specific pre-requisites but I would just like to double-check with someone from the school of computing before I pay and complete my registration.

Please let me know - either by replying here, or drop me a line at pcholakov@gmail.com.

Thanks a ton!
Pavel

Be aware that you MUST take research for computing, so you should probably add that to your first year modules.
Although you have probably read as much in the brochure by now smiling smiley

I did see that, and apparently COS416D is not available this year, so I substituted the research module and kept the other choices. So once again, thanks very much for the link - it's crazy that the contact centre couldn't find and send me this exact document!

If you need to know anything, I suggest you contact the lecturer direct, Unisa contact centre is very useless, I wonder sometimes why does it exists in the first place!confused smiley
