CSC 110 Software Design and Programming I

4 Credit(s)

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. This course is intended for students majoring or minoring in Computer Science.   Three lecture hours and three hours of scheduled laboratory per week plus extensive programming work outside of class.

Prerequisities: High school algebra I & II, plus experience with a window-based operating system and the use of email and a word processor. Not available to students who have received credit for ITE 210. Limited to Computer Science majors and minors or permission of the Department Chairperson.
