This hands-on course follows on from COMP 1510. This course covers the fundamental concepts of design, development, testing, and debugging intermediate-level programs in a procedural language. Topics include language syntax, data abstraction and encapsulation, error handling, graphical user interfaces, and the implementation of selected data structures and algorithms.

Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
- Apply the properties of good procedural software design including encapsulation, information hiding, and functional decomposition to create easily extensible systems in the context of intermediate-level programs.
- Decompose a program into multiple modules with well defined interfaces.
- Analyze and explain behaviour of intermediate-level programs involving procedural programming constructs including encapsulation, information hiding, and functional decomposition.
- Write programs using file processing to read and write textual or binary data.
- Manage dynamic memory.
- Design, implement, debug and test intermediate-level procedural programs in a modern high-level procedural programming language.
- Develop recursive functions and compare recursion to iteration.
- Use pointers to implement data structures and explain their relation to arrays and strings.
- Implement data structures and basic algorithms including linked lists, binary search trees, insertion sort, selection sort & binary search.
