Introduction to Computer Programming

15 points



Computer programming in a high-level language with special emphasis on style and structure. This course is a prerequisite for COSC122 and higher level Computer Science, Computer Engineering and Software Engineering courses. It is an alternative to COSC131, with both courses teaching the fundamentals of computer programming using the Python language and can be taken by students who have no previous programming background. Topics include expressions, assignment, selection and iteration, structured data (lists, dictionaries, tuples, arrays), functional decomposition, file processing, and an introduction to object-oriented programming.
