CMPT 140 CMPT 140 - Introduction to Computing Science and Programming

An elementary introduction to computing science and programming as a problem-solving tool. Fundamental concepts and terminology of computing science will be introduced. Programming skill will be obtained by using a high-level language. Topics will include: abstraction, data types and control structures, fundamental algorithms and pseudocode, computability and complexity, and computer architecture.

Cross-listed: ISYS 140

Prerequisite(s): None. (3-1-3 or 3-1-3)

CMPT 166 CMPT 166 - Introduction to Computing Science and Programming II

A rigorous introduction to computing science and computer programming. Students will learn indepth programming concepts by seeing how object oriented (OO) concepts are employed in the design and writing of code in a variety of notations. The emphasis is on the theory of OO programming and design of solutions, as well as implementation using an OO language such as Java or C++.
