Bring Back CPSC 527
Dear Dr. Jacob,
We the undersigned ask that the Department of Computer Science reinstate CPSC 527 (Computer Viruses and Malware) or an equivalent. Though the Department does offer a number of information security courses, this particular course seemed unique and had a reputation for it's difficult but also for invaluable skills and knowledge that students learned. Many foresaw it as one of the pinnacles of years of prerequisites, and finding out it will no longer be offered (and with no obvious replacement) has been very unwelcome news. We have created this petition so that you understand the number of students who planned to enroll in the course and to ask the course be reinstated or that an equivalent/replacement be offered for those wishing to specialize in information security.
