Course Description

Students focus on practicing and developing programing skills. Students implement algorithms along with appropriate data structures to produce good software. Students apply recursion, abstract data types, algorithm analysis, sorting and searching algorithms, pointers, arrays, dynamic memory management, linked lists, stacks, and queues. Students also learn about low-level data representations and systematic software development. As a tool, object-oriented programming is introduced.
