COMP 1516 - Programming Fundamentals with Python

Computer Systems Part-time Studies Course

School of Computing and Academic Studies

To support you and your education, BCIT is adapting applied learning in formats appropriate to the unfolding global situation. All PTS classes are being delivered in an online format unless you are notified otherwise.

Course Details

​This hands-on introductory course replaced COMP 1409 and is the foundation for all Computing PTS programming courses. Students with no prior coding experience are introduced to programming concepts and how to use Python to write simple programs. This is a BYOD (bring your own device) course, participants must provide their own current model PC with an i5 or higher equivalent processor, 8 GB of RAM minimum, 256 GB minimum storage and high-speed internet access. COMP 1516 is the prerequisite for COMP 2501 –Programming Fundamentals Part 2 which is also required for the Applied Software Development, ASD Associate Certificate as well as the Computer Systems Certificate, CSC. Participation is mandatory and students can expect a minimum of 4 hours per week online in real time via the BCIT Learning Hub plus using two-way audio and video. Attendance is required during scheduled class hours and students should also plan for an additional 10+ hours homework per week in most weeks. Participants design, implement, test, and debug simple programs that incorporate: variables, expressions, assignments, I/O, conditional and iterative control constructs, functions, and parameter passing. COMP 1516 is not a Python development course, it is the first step in the study of applied programming fundamentals. Topics include: Data structures, data modelling, programming constructs, lists, strings, sets and maps. Labs and exercises focus on writing code for projects, assignments, and activities. Upon successful completion students will have a basic understanding of programming and be prepared to move on to COMP 2501 –Programming Fundamentals Part 2.
