- CS Pathfinders is a supplementary instruction program
created to increase the diversity of the undergraduate
population in the School of Engineering. Students participating
in the program will enroll in an additional one unit course
(CR/NC) and will attend two additional 1.5 hour sections
per week focused on reviewing course material and completing coding
exercises to solidify understanding. Note that this is not a
replacement for regular sections in CS106A. This is an
additional supplementary program for
students who would like additional time for review of the course
material. Participants will also
receive access to additional exam review sessions, one-on-one
tutoring, office-hours, and other resources.
