1. The professors are very on point about teaching the material, and I enjoy their teaching style.
2. Seems to cover coding languages that are being used today.
3. Some ICS class semester calendars seem to always be prepared and accessible to all students so they can prepare effectively ahead of time.
Three positive things I have noticed about the UH ICS program in my short time here:
First, there seems to be a lot of effort to replicate real world environments which is really valuable for learning. The second is that accommodations are made for students to learn in the environment they are most comfortable or interested in (Linus/Mac/Windows for instance). Lastly, there is a good variety of higher level coursework to allow specialization by the student in areas they find most interesting.
ACM clubs and competitions.
TAs for almost every class.
I think three good things about being an UH ICS student is that
1 - You get free Microsoft software.
2 - You meet many diverse people in Hawaii and in the program.
3 - You learn to see technology in ways for the community and Hawaii.
