If you can only think of one thing, that's OK too.

The three good things that the UH ICS program is providing for its students are:

1. The UH ICS program provides a door into the tech field, whether it be programming, networking, or security you can find a degree that best fits you.

2. The UH ICS program provides an environment with like minded people to network with. There are several groups you can join and the classrooms encourage social behavior.

3. The UH ICS program provides quality leadership. The TA's are helpful and the professors know what they are talking about.

What are three good things that the UH ICS program is providing for its students?

  • Opportunity - Being a CENG student it seems that there's so many job opportunities out there. Most of my graduated teammates and affiliates in CENG have jobs right out of college. Having to take on three projects and suggested internship allows for an ample amount of experience coming out to the real world.
  • If I'm at my computer all day, I might as well spend it doing something productive - Growing up in a tech world, many of us grew up looking at screens and for many of us it's been a large inspiration. Seeing tech grow at an exponential rate and wanting to contribute to it is a big motivation and I'm lucky to possibly be a contribution to this community.
  • Potential to change lives or make an impact - Technology is everywhere and can potentially help others. Whether it be direct or indirect influence, there's the possibility to give back to your community in technological innovation.

Three good things about the UH ICS program:

1) While hardware can be an issue, there's a lot of free resources out there for software and other online tools that help save yourself some money.  Whether they're online tutorials, downloadable software or operating systems for free, they're all life savers if you know what to look for.

2) Being the nature of a technology based class, the likelihood of using the technology to our advantage is higher.  Having something such as Slack or Discord, as well as other social media platforms allows the classes to be a lot closer and a lot more communicative.  Talking or asking questions becomes as easy as popping into the application and throwing it into the general chat.  No fiddling with emails or relying on a forum or email directly to the teacher to wait for a response.  Even meeting up with like minded individuals or clubs as well as project groups benefit from this greatly.

3) There's individuals in person who have already had their foots in the door to learn and gain experience on the more practical part of the subject.  They're also teaching about the use of Social Media site which further increase our practical experience and assist in our long term goals of the subject.

  1. Through ACM, I was able to hear from guest speakers talking about their experiences in the industry which gave me a better understanding of what it is I am preparing for.

  2. The ICSpace provides a good place to collaborate with people you may not even know on work you don't understand.

  3. The TA's in the ICS department have always been more helpful when it came to office hours and asking questions.

1. The classes are challenging but fun, allowing for a great learning experience that requires you to push yourself forward and improve.

2. Able to network with other ICS students through clubs.

3. The faculty inspires success, encouraging each student to do their best and do well. It makes it easy to reach out for help when needed.

1. free software

2. learning practical programming skill

3. good professional advice

1. Learning the new high technology to improve our lives.

2. improving our resume, so it is easier for us to get a good job

3. Learning how to solve the real problems.

1. One of the great things about being an ICS student are the variety of skills that you learn from the program. There are so many things I learned in ICS that I will eventually be able to apply to my future career once I graduate.

2. As an ICS student there are also many clubs that are available to you. Clubs like the ACM are available to all, which allows for ICS students to easily network with each other. These clubs also help teach you new skills or show another field of ICS that you may be interested in.

3. Another thing that's great about being an ICS student are the professors for the classes. Many of them have real world experience and are willing to help their students and provide all the material needed to succeed in their respective classes.

1. The community of people who give great ideas on my home computer/server setup. Whether it's how to setup port forwarding for a game server to tips on improving my Workstation Deployment Server for work, the people here help because they love the subject. 

2. The in depth study into how computers work. From the bit-level view on computation in ICS 222 thru the formal logic in ICS' 141 & 241.

3. The troubleshooting experience, while frustrating at times, is incredibly rewarding. Staring a lines of code wondering, "Why isn't this list linking?" only to find out the objects I was making didn't have any children, having my code print out "test1" and "test2" etc at various points, or deleting features and running the thing piece by piece, solving problems is fun.

1. There are many people who share a similar schedule so you might find help available at any time.

2. You can really apply what you learned immediately, and see the result, like feeling the Run-time of the Sudoku Algorithm differs between different sized Sudoku, and the rapid shrinking disk space due to bug in your own code.

1. Great atmosphere of professors who love what they do and share their passion for Computer Science.

2. The amount of information and experiences you take from the classes and apply them to research projects.

3. The broadness of the subject allows students to go outside to other disciplines and apply knowledge like logic that is learned in discrete math to a class like philosophy.

1. Gerald is a great advisor and his emails offer us students many career and internship opportunities and generally informing us of events that may interest us. 

2. ACM is a great club that allows students to make connections and offers us a way to learn more about cybersecurity, game development, and algorithms. 

3. I think that it’s great that the ICS program is encouraging students to invest some time in developing their professional identity to better set us up for the future.
