Computer Systems Course

International Fees

International fees are typically 3.12 times the domestic tuition. Exact cost will be calculated upon completion of registration.

Course details

​This fourth-level computer programming course follows on from COMP 2601 and assumes prior knowledge of object-oriented programming using Java. COMP 3602 starts with an introduction to C# programming with Microsoft Visual Studio and the .NET Framework for application development. Labs and assignments are designed to reinforce Microsoft industry standard naming conventions and best practices. Topics include: Windows Forms and controls, event-driven programming, deploying a web service, asynchronous programming, working with SQL databases and effective application debugging. Students build graphical user interfaces (GUIs) and design Windows application software. ​​COMP 3602 is an elective in the Applied Software Development (ASD) Associate Certificate. It is a prerequisite for COMP 4602​. Both .NET courses are required in the Advanced .NET Development (AND) Associate Certificate, and are electives the CST/FLEX Diploma. Upon completion, successful students will be able to use C# to build and deploy cross platform software applications with the latest .NET technologies.
