FALL 2008
We hope you will find your stay at Case Western Reserve University mind-expanding and educational. This packet provides the necessary initial information you need to settle into our department’s programs. Our tradition has been to treat each graduate student as a “special individual”.
Information about the content of graduate courses and the general guidelines for the graduate program can be found in the Case Western Reserve University General Bulletin. Additional information about our program can be obtained from the EECS Office of Student Affairs in Glennan 321. You may also visit our Web site at for more up-to-date information. The EECS Office of Student Affairs can help you identify the person or committee best suited to assist you.
It is worthwhile to check your assigned mailbox regularly for important notices, mail, and scheduled colloquium announcements. These boxes can be found in Glennan 321 near the copy machine. If your name is not on one, contact the Graduate Program Coordinator in Glennan 321.
New graduate teaching assistants are expected to enroll in the non-credit course, Professional Development for Graduate Assistants (UNIV 400). This required course, usually offered one week before the Fall Semester starts, consist of seminars by faculty on effective professional communication skills. It also provides teaching assistants with opportunities to discuss and reflect upon their instructional roles.
EECS graduate students are required to enroll in the Colloquium Course EECS 500 every semester. If you are admitted as a Ph.D. student you are required to take EECS 400T, 500T and 600T. These are teaching-related requirements that should be fulfilled in the first semester (400T), second semester (500T) and a later semester (600T) of study. Typically, EECS 400T and EECS 500T are taken in the first academic year of Graduate Study unless approved by the appropriate EECS Associate Chair.
