Overview

Course Description
This course introduces students to computing science and programming. It includes fundamental concepts and terminology of computing science, program design and fundamental building blocks for programming in a high-level language. Topics cover, but are not limited to Windows forms, properties, pseudo code, data types, arrays, operators, control structures, methods, classes, objects, and fundamental algorithms.
Course Content

1) Programming in general

  • Program development cycle
  • Programming tools – flowcharts, pseudocode
  • Integrated development environment

2) Programming in C#, NET

  • Console application development
  • Data type and expressions
  • Variables and constants
  • Graphical User Interface (GUI)
  • Windows Forms

3) Methods

  • Calling and implementing methods
  • Scope of variables
  • Value-type and reference-type parameters

4) Fundamental of Object-Oriented Programming (OOP)

  • Classes and objects
  • Properties, methods and constructors
  • Method and constructor overloading

5) Flow of control

  • Relational and logical operators
  • Conditional statements
  • Repetitions

6) Basic data structures and algorithm

  • One-dimensional and two-dimensional arrays
  • Dictionary
  • List/ArrayList
  • Searching and sorting

7) File I/O

  • Reading and writing text files
  • LINQ

Learning Outcomes

At the end of this course, successful students will be able to:

  1. describe the process of program design and development;
  2. develop a structured console program given a well-defined specification;
  3. differentiate various data types and expressions;
  4. describe the use of variables and constants and their scope in a program;
  5. state the purpose of methods;
  6. differentiate different forms of parameters of a method;
  7. demonstrate basic object-oriented programming concepts such as classes, objects, properties, methods, constructors, etc.;
  8. implement different flows of controls such as conditional statements and repetitions;
  9. implement basic data structures such as one-dimensional arrays, two dimensional arrays, dictionaries, and list ;
  10. utilize different GUI forms and controls to build windows form applications;
  11. implement the process of file I/O;
