Recommendations for MS students
It is our goal that you are successful in your program. Try to:

1. Follow the courses in the program and make a program plan (list all courses you would like to take as Electives). Make sure you comply with pre-requisites (they are set for you to be able to get good grades).

2. Talk to your advisor if grades are not going as desired.

3. Experience the environment in the first semester, do not overload. GPA is very important. Achieving a high GPA is very important.

4. Attend seminars and talks in the department. You will learn of new markets and ideas.
Co-OPs and Internships
Please note that you need to apply for Co-Ops and Internet with time in advance. Co-Ops follow deadlines as registration for courses (one semester in advance), and incur tuition fees. However, they may not apply for your program. Internships are usually performed during the summer. They both are useful for collecting working experience.
