To provide foundations for constructing computer programs and to convey specific skills in a high level programming language. The students will also understand why programming is important. After the course the students will be able to:
  • Describe what will be the output of a program from the source code
  • Use built-in data types for integers, floating point numbers, text strings, arrays and records
  • Use control structures for selection and iteration in own programs
  • Develop algorithms for a problem
  • Construct program from a problem description using different data types and control structures
  • Construct sub programs and use different types of parameters and return values
  • Understand how to pass information between sub programs
  • Construct programs modularly from subprograms, where every sub program performs one task
  • Find and correct errors, logical and syntax, in a program
  • Write programs with basic file processing
  • Describe the following concepts: compilation, source code, object code, executable code, identifier, parameters, scope, visibility, call by value call by reference, syntax, syntax error, logical errors
