I&C SCI X460.37

Data Structures and Algorithms

(2.50 Units)

I&C SCI X460.37

Gain a solid background in data structures and their associated algorithms. This course approaches data structures from an advanced viewpoint with a focus on basic principles of modern software engineering. It provides a good foundation for further study in object-oriented programming. Course topics are presented in a language-neutral fashion which may be adapted to any number of modern programming languages. Assignments will require use of pseudo-code to stress the design and architecture. You'll learn how to analyze large-scale problems and create solutions by identifying the data structures and relevant algorithms, evaluate efficiency tradeoffs in competing designs, and modularize programs by encapsulating data structures with their accompanying algorithms. Prerequisites: Knowledge of computers and some programming experience is helpful but not required.
