COMP1002J Intro to Programming 2

Academic Year 2019/2020

This module constitutes the second part of the introduction to programming and it is a continuation of what it was covered in COMP1001J (Introduction to Programming I). Some concepts which were already covered in the first trimester will be studied here in more detail. In addition we will look at concepts such as pointers, arrays, structures, unions, functions and basic data structures. A strong emphasis is placed on the development of practical programming skills, for solving common programming problems. The course is designed to give a sound understanding of the programming techniques, and how to get your application programs from the design phase to its implementation.
