CSE 142, our first introductory course, had 995 students during Autumn Quarter, and has 1,011 students this quarter. In the past year, 2,892 students have taken the course – 35% of them women.
CSE 143, our second introductory course, has 807 students this quarter; in the past year, 1,802 students have taken the course.
That’s a total of 4,694 student enrollments in these courses in the past year!
(During fall quarter, CSE’s remarkable Stuart Reges taught both 142 and 143; he and his amazing team of 63 undergraduate teaching assistants – more than 40% of whom were women – generated roughly 2% of UW total student credit hours that quarter!)
