Application Development with C# COMP 3602

Computer Systems Course

Course details

This fourth-level computer programming course follows on from COMP 2601 and assumes prior knowledge of object-oriented programming using Java. Students must provide their own current model PC, i5 or higher equivalent processor, 8 GB of RAM minimum, and 256 GB minimum storage. High-speed internet access is needed for online sections and for homework. COMP 3602 starts with an introduction to C# programming with Microsoft Visual Studio and the .NET Framework 4.8 for Windows application development. Labs and assignments are designed to reinforce Microsoft industry standards 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. Please Note: Attendance, participation in class and the BCIT Learning Hub are required. Students may have an average total time commitment of 12+ total hours each week; 3 hours of class time, a 1-hour online component and 8+ hours of homework. COMP 3602 is the prerequisite for COMP 3973 Web Application in ASP.NET MVC Core. Both courses are required in the Advanced .NET Development (AND) Associate Certificate and are electives the CST/PTS Diploma. Upon completion, successful students will be able to use C# to build and deploy well designed Console and Windows Form applications with the latest .NET technologies. This course replaces both COMP 2614 and COMP 3618 of September 2021.
