It is important that the applicant be sensitive to some aspects of a CSU student’s education that, once engaged, make for better students and faculty alike.


  • Familiarity with various computer system architectures from massive multiprocessor systems to miniaturized personal cluster computer systems.
  • Software development skills using programs on Microsoft platforms and open-source software such as Linux.
