Procedural Programming with C COMP 2511

Computer Systems Course

International Fees

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

Course details

This intermediate-level course follows on from COMP 1451 or COMP 2501 and assumes significant prior knowledge of computer programming fundamentals. Topics include language syntax, common coding styles and idioms and the implementation of selected data structures and algorithms in C. Lectures and code examples are reinforced with hands-on labs, and assignments. Students must provide their own current model Windows capable 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 2511 has two classes per week over ten weeks and uses the BCIT Learning Hub for quizzes, discussion boards, labs and assignments. Please Note: Attendance and participation in class are mandatory. Students may have an average total time commitment of 15+ hours per week; 6 hours of synchronous class time, plus 9-12 hours of homework each week. C Programming students will have improved application development abilities in other programming languages, as the C syntax is the basis for Java, C# and C++. This course is equivalent to COMP 2510 in the CST Full-time Diploma which has transfer credit to several universities. COMP 2511 is an elective in the Applied Software Development, ASD Associate Certificate. It is required in the Computer Systems Certificate, CSC and for the follow-on courses in C++ starting January 2022. Upon completion, successful students will be able to build and deploy modular multi-file C programs to industry standards.
