Every Undergraduate enrolled in the Computer Science program at UMass Lowell must complete a two semester project sequence. Completing the requirement, however, is not as simple as registering for a normal course. Each project sequence has a set of pre-requisites that must be fulfilled, meaning that students set on completing a particular sequence should plan their semesters accordingly.
