This hands-on course follows on from COMP 1510 in the full-time CST Diploma. Students are introduced to the procedural programming paradigm using the C programming language. Topics include: language syntax, common coding styles and idioms and the implementation of selected data structures and algorithms in C. Successful participants will learn how to design and build modular multi-file C programs and be prepared to move on to several higher level courses. COMP 2510 Procedural Programming in C is a required course in the full-time CST Diploma before option placement. It needs to be completed prior to a number of courses in second year including COMP 3512 Object Oriented Programming in C++, and COMP 4735 Operating Systems.
This course is 60 hours offered as a classroom (42 hours) AND online (18 hours) format. The class meets once per week for 3.5 hours face to face and requires an additional 1.5 hour per week online. Reading, home work and assignments may require an additional 5+ hours per week outside of class. The average total commitment for this course is 6-8 hours each week. Due to the substantial time required on labs and assignments, students are advised not to take any other programming language courses simultaneously.
This course offering is in progress. Please check back next term or subscribe to receive email updates.
