Courses  []

2014 Fall

  • COSC 117-504 PROGRAMMING FUNDAMENTALS
    Introductory course in computer programming, which involves solving problems by designing, implementing and testing algorithms. Emphasis is on problem solving through the use of algorithms and learning to develop computer programs that are reliable, well-documented, and correct. Implementation is done in object-oriented based languages concentrating on fundamental instructions and the development and implementation of events, methods, and functions. Three hours lecture, two hours lab per week. Meets General Education IVB (Prior to Fall 2008: IIIB).
  • COSC 120-501 COMPUTER SCIENCE I
    Step-by-step approach to problem solving, modular structured design, and structured programming in C++. Emphasizes production of readable, well documented, efficient, tested and correct programs. Includes time intensive assignments. Prerequisite: C or better in COSC 117 or permission of department. Three hours lecture, two hours laboratory per week.
  • COSC 425-001 SOFTWARE ENGINEERING I
    Study of conventional and object-oriented software engineering principles and methods: the human-computer interface, requirements analysis, prototyping, software design, system models, use of tools, project management, implementation, testing strategies, software metrics, maintenance, quality assurance, ethics and professional responsibility. Use of standards, verification and validation, configuration management, quality assurance and human factors. Student teams will analyze a real-world problem and design, implement, document and test a software system based upon the specified requirements. COSC 426 is a continuation of 425. Prerequisite: COSC 320. Three hours per week.

2015 Spring

  • COSC 120-503 COMPUTER SCIENCE I
    Step-by-step approach to problem solving, modular structured design, and structured programming in C++. Emphasizes production of readable, well documented, efficient, tested and correct programs. Includes time intensive assignments. Prerequisite: C or better in COSC 117 or permission of department. Three hours lecture, two hours laboratory per week.
  • COSC 422-001 ORGANIZ OF PROGRAM LANG
    Study of the organization of programming languages, with emphasis on their formal specifications and on the run-time behavior of procedural, object-based, functional and logic programming languages. History, syntax and grammars, control, binding, pointers, blocks, parameters, and encapsulation. May be offered for undergraduate or graduate credit. Prerequisite: COSC 220. Three hours per week.
  • COSC 426-001 SOFTWARE ENGINEERING II
    Study of conventional and object-oriented software engineering principles and methods: the human-computer interface, requirements analysis, prototyping, software design, system models, use of tools, project management, implementation, testing strategies, software metrics, maintenance, quality assurance, ethics and professional responsibility. Use of standards, verification and validation, configuration management, quality assurance and human factors. Student teams will analyze a real-world problem and design, implement, document and test a software system based upon the specified requirements. COSC 426 is a continuation of 425. Prerequisite: COSC 320. Three hours per week.
