The Stanford Computer Science Comprehensive Examination was conceived Spring
Quarter 1971/72 and since then has been given winter and spring quarters each year.
The @i[Comp] serves several purposes in the department. There are no
course requirements in the Ph.D. and the Ph.D. Minor programs, and
only one (CS293, @i[Computer Laboratory]) in the Master's program.
Therefore, the @i[Comp] fulfills the breadth and depth requirements.
The Ph.D. Minor and Master's student must pass at the Master's level to be
eligible for the degree. For the Ph.D. student it serves as a "Rite of
Passage;" the exam must be passed at the Ph.D. level by the end of six
quarters of full-time study (excluding summers) for the student to continue
in the program.
This report is a collection of comprehensive examinations
from Winter Quarter 1978/79 through Spring Quarter 1980/81.
