  1. Departmental approval needed
  2. Please email cstpts@bcit.ca for Departmental approval. Include your Student number and CRN preference to be added to an approval queue. Any approval requests missing either piece of information will not be entered into the queue until the required information is provided. Approvals may take 48 – 72 hours to process. This course is 60 hours offered as a classroom (36 hours) AND online (24 hours) format. The class meets once per week for 3 hours face to face and requires an additional 2 hours 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. Late registration is not permitted. No classes on October 14 (Thanksgiving) and November 11 (Remembrance Day).

Learning Outcomes

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.

Effective as of Winter 2019
