INTRODUCTION TO OBJECT-ORIENTED PROGRAMMING IN JAVA

Computer Science 172

This course will give students the essentials of object-oriented programming in Java. Students will learn to formulate algorithms, to solve problems and to implement those solutions with a Java program that employs objects and classes. The student will be introduced to object-oriented design, applications and applets, class construction, methods and message passing arrays, string processing, file processing, and some event-handling and Graphical Use Interface programming. This course is designed for students with some prior programming experience.


3 Units

INTRODUCTION TO C++

Computer Science 174

This course teaches basic programming skills using the structured high-level language C++. Topics include basic input and output, declaration and use of variables, use of control statements, implementation of functions usig value and reference parameters, arrays, and structures. Students will write moderately complex applications using C++.


3 Units

INTRODUCTION TO DATABASE AND THE WEB (GM)

Computer Science 181

This course provides the student with a comprehensive working knowledge of a modern database package including the creation of a database, construction of a wide range of queries, use of forms, and report writing features. The course also gives an introduction to the creation of World Wide Web pages using the Extended Hypertext Markup Language (XHTML).


3 Units

INTERMEDIATE C++

Computer Science 222

This course will cover more advanced issues of C++, including memory management, pointers and user-defined data types. Topics will include reading and writing files, dynamic arrays, implementation of the principles of object oriented design including encapsulation, and inheritance, planning and testing. Students will write complex applications using C++.


3 Units

ADVANCED C++

JAVASCRIPT AND DHTML

Computer Science 381

JavaScript is a computer language for adding flexibility and functionality to web pages. A powerful language in its own right, it also has the capability to interact with HTML forms, browsers, Java applets, and other objects found on a web page. Students in this course will gain a thorough understanding of JavaScript, and learn to harness it abilitities to manage windows, forms, events, cookies, etc.


3 Units

PERL AND CGI SCRIPTING

Computer Science 382

Perl and CGI scripting are key to processing web forms, as well as for automating a wide range of server tasks. Perl is optimized for scanning text files, extracting information and generating reports/web pages based on the results. This course will provide a thorough introduction to the Perl language, with an emphasis on its use in processing web forms. Students will learn to manipulate data, generate dynamic web pages, control email and much more.
