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 386 DATABASE DESIGN & IMPLEMENT (Fall 2019)
Concentrates on the physical design and implementation of databases. Query algorithms and efficiency optimization will be explored. Students will design, implement and document large database systems. Prerequisites: COSC 220 and MATH 210. Three hours per week.
COSC 390 UNDERGRAD RESEARCH PROJ (Fall 2019)
Offers study of some area of computer science in more depth than is possible in the usual classroom setting. Students work on projects under the direction of faculty members. Prerequisite: Department approval. (P/F)
