Howard Universities Computer Science Department after merging with Howard Universities Electrical Engineering Department has suffered a major loss in funding. The Computer Science Department has also lost numerous amounts of staff and professors who taught critical classes for people to graduate.

We need substantial amount of funding for Teachers Assistants, space to have computer science class, and more professors who specify in teaching critical courses not just professors who have doctorates in the field.

I had a professor last semester who was placed a week before the semester started to teach a Fundamental of Algorithms class and he never taught the class and this class is not his field of study. With him expressing this to us everyday we ended up with no knowledge of the course. In a nut shell we had to teach ourselves a difficult subject and failed because of it and we did not have another professor who could teach neither did we have enough money for a TA. Our program director had to scrounge funds for a graduate student to teach for the last 3 classes of the semester. We ended up passing but majority of the work that we did in the class didn't count and this specific class is how we get jobs within our field.
