Computer Science (CS)

CS 115U  (3 credit hours)  
Introduction to Computer Programming  

This course teaches introductory skills in computer programming using a high-level computer programming language. There is an emphasis on both the principles and practice of computer programming. Covers principles of problem solving by computer and requires completion of a number of programming assignments. Lecture: 3.0 credits (45 contact hours).

CS 215U  (4 credit hours)  
Introduction to Program Design, Abstraction, and Problem Solving  

The course covers introductory object-oriented problem solving, design, and programming engineering. Fundamentals elements of data structures and algorithm design will be addressed. An equally balanced effort will be devoted to the three main threads in the course: concepts, programming language skills, and rudiments of object-oriented programming and software engineering. Lecture: 4.0 credits (60 contact hours).

Pre-requisite: CS 115, 221 or equivalent.

Systems Programming  

This course provides an introduction to computer systems and explores computer architecture, operating systems, and networks from a programmer's perspective. The course also introduces advanced programming and debugging tools. Topics include hardware instruction sets, machine language and C language program representations, linking/loading, operating systems (process management, scheduling, memory management, interprocess communication, and file systems), network programming (socket programming and web protocols), and common security attacks and solutions.
