All assignments, handouts, etc for this course can be found at the CSE 1341 WebSite:
Attendance is taken at each lab. Attendance will not be marked if you appear and then leave
before the end of the two hour lab session. The only exception is in the case that your
assignment for that week has been properly submitted. In any case, you MUST go to lab to
demonstrate this to your TA.
In this course, specific design guidelines are required and must be completed for each
programming project. Details are beyond the scope of this document but more information may
be found in the CSE Programming Course Supplement at
Submission of Programming Projects:
In order for your assignments to be reviewed and graded by you TA, you must submit the
files to the appropriate place on Blackboard. No assignments will be accepted by your TA via E-
Mail or on any physical media. Files must be submitted to Blackboard by the assigned date and
time. Don’t forget to click the submit button!!!!
Assignments may be submitted late ONLY WITH PERMISSION OF PROFESSOR. You must
request a late submission link in Blackboard from your professor. The TAs are not allowed to
open Blackboard submission links. Past that time, no late programs are accepted. Note that you
may submit you assignment solutions early. If you have to be out of town or are ill, you may
attend another lab section other than your own but please notify both TAs as to the situation.
The CSE Help Desk:
The Help Desk is a service offered by the Computer Science and Engineering Department that
is staffed by all departmental TAs. Your TA will have assigned hours where he/she will staff the
Help Desk. The goal of the Help Desk is to assist you with specific questions that you may have
with respect to your homework or programming projects. The TAs are also able to help explain
concepts as well as help you with your understanding course material and assignments. The TA
is however is not there to write your code for you or give you answers to homework questions.
In order to make the best use of TAs time, it is important that you arrive at the help desk with
questions. If you are struggling with a programming project, you may be asked to show your
During the semester, you will make extensive use of the PCs and UNIX servers from the
School of Engineering. It is very important that you fix any login problems during the first week

digit SMU id in your email. Again: ALL LOGIN PROBLEMS MUST BE RESOLVED THE FIRST
WEEK OF LAB CLASS.
