CS Department Opportunities
Computer Science Resource Center (CRC)
The objective of the Computer Science Resource Center is to provide tutoring services to undergraduates taking computer science courses at Pitt. The CRC is staffed at the beginning of each term. Peer Tutors assist students enrolled in lower-level programming classes. The CRC is for students who need help with CS 0004, CS 0007, CS 0008, CS 0134, CS 0334, CS 0401, CS 0441, CS 0445, CS 0447 and CS 0449. We seek students who enjoy working with and helping others and who have performed well in the CS core courses (CS 0401, CS 0441, CS 0445, CS 0447 and CS 0449).
Work hours are scheduled around your availability.
The CRC is generally open during business hours; however students have requested more evening and weekend hours. "On Call" hours may also be available.
Undergraduate computer science or computer engineering majors who have completed the CS 400 level core courses and are interested in becoming a Peer Tutor may obtain additional information from 6119 Sennott Square.

Occasionally, faculty involved with research hire undergraduates to assist them with research projects. The students selected for these projects have typically performed very well in several upper-level classes. Advertisements for these positions are found posted in Sennott Square or are announced in class. Please contact faculty members directly regarding department research opportunties.
