COSC101-Introduction to Computer Science


Those students that have clash of lectures in their COSC101 lab can change their lab group before the closure of the portal. Three additional labs have been created on Thursday and Friday (Lab G39, G40 and G41) to ease the flexibility of changing from one group to the other.

Important Information

COSC101 currently runs in both first and second semesters with 12 Lab groups and 38 Lecture groups. If you cannot register for the course in the first semester, note that it is because the lectures and lab groups are filled up to the required capacity. In such situation you should register for the course as COSC101 in the second semester not COSC102.
