CSC 110 Software Design and Programming I

4 Credit(s) DII


This course introduces a set of fundamental design principles and problem-solving techniques for the development of computer algorithms and their implementation as programs. Problem solutions are developed with the help of an appropriate modeling language and then coded in an object-oriented programming language. (Consult the Computer Science Department for the languages and tools currently in use.) Topics such as problem specification, object-oriented analysis and design, standard data types, control structures, methods and parameter passing, and design for reuse are presented through a study of specific example problems and solutions. Style, documentation, solution  robustness, and conformance with specifications are emphasized throughout. Three lecture hours and three hours of scheduled laboratory per week, plus extensive programming work outside of class. Not open to students who have received credit for CSC201J.
Prerequisites: Fulfillment of the Basic Mathematics Competency Based Skills requirement and the ability to use standard computer software (e.g., operating system features, word processing, email, and web browsers).
