Bio

<p>Dr. Hans-Peter Bischof is a professor of computer science at the Rochester Institute of Technology and serves as program chair of the MS degree in computer science. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Osnabrück/Germany. He spent five years researching compiler and language design, and moved from there to research on operating systems designs and distributed systems for a decade. His current research is focused on visualization of scientific data. Dr. Bischof is a member of RIT's Center for Computational Relativity and Gravitation and a member of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO).</p>

Currently Teaching

CSCI-699
0 Credits
Students perform professional work related to Computer Science for which they are paid. Students work full time during the term for which they are registered. Students must complete a student co-op work report for each term for which they are registered; students are also evaluated each term by their employer. A satisfactory grade is given for co-op when both a completed student co-op work report and a completed, corresponding employer evaluation are received and when both documents are generally consistent. Co-op is an optional part of the MS in Computer Science degree. Graduate students are eligible to do a maximum of 364 days of co-op and students must register for co-op by the end of add/drop period for the appropriate term. See the CS graduate program coordinator or RIT's Office of Cooperative Education and Career Services for further details.
CSCI-788
3 Credits
Project capstone of the master's degree program. Students select from a set of possible projects and confirm that they have a project adviser. Students enroll in a required colloquium component that meets weekly, during which they present information, related to their projects. Projects culminate with delivery of a final report and participation in a poster session open to the public.
CSCI-799
1 - 3 Credits
Students work with a supervising faculty member on topics of mutual interest. A student works with a potential faculty sponsor to draft a proposal that describes what a student plans to do, what deliverables are expected, how the student's work will be evaluated, and how much credit will be assigned for successful completion of the work. The faculty sponsor proposes the grade, but before the grade is officially recorded, the student must submit a final report that summarizes what was actually accomplished.

MS Students who are preparing for their capstone experience.
CSCI-605
3 Credits
This course focuses on identifying advanced object-oriented programming concepts and implementing them in the context of specific problems. This course covers advanced concepts such as event-driven programming, design patterns, distributed and concurrent programming, and the use, design and implementation of applications. Assignments (both in class and as homework) requiring a solution to a problem and an implementation in code are an integral part of the course. Note: This course serves as a bridge course for graduate students and cannot be taken by undergraduate students without permission from the CS Undergraduate Program Coordinator.
CSCI-790
6 Credits
Thesis capstone of the master's degree program. Student must submit an acceptable thesis proposal in order to enroll. It is expected that the work would lead to a paper of the caliber of those generally acceptable to a national conference.
CSCI-888
0 Credits
Students perform professional work related to Computer Science for which they are paid. Students must complete a student co-op work report for each term for which they are registered; students are also evaluated each term by their employer. A satisfactory grade is given for co-op when both a completed student co-op work report and a completed, corresponding employer evaluation are received and when both documents are generally consistent. When registered for co-op, students are considered by RIT to have full-time status. In order to register for co-op for summer term, we expect that students will work a minimum of 10 weeks and work a minimum of 35 hours per week. Note: Co-op is an optional part of the MS in Computer Science degree.
