Graduate capabilities & intended learning outcomes
01. Construct correct solutions to advanced programming problems using algorithms.
- Students have 7 lectures describing basic C syntax and design with advanced lectures discussing higher level data structures and problem solving. Students are required to construct correct solutions to problems in the assignment, 10 laboratories and 1 exam.
02. Accurately transform algorithms into C-code to produce a working program consisting of complex C features such as function pointers and recursive procedures.
- In laboratories, assignments and lectures students are required to transform algorithms to equivalent C code in the assignment, 10 laboratories and 1 exam. The CSE5CES students will be need to use more complex features of C than CSE1CES when doing labs and the exam. These features include function pointers and recursive procedures.
03. Analyse complex examples of C-code accurately to identify syntax and logical errors.
- In lectures students are taught correct syntax and logical design along with debugging tools to identify errors in code. Students are required to identify mistakes in C code in the 10 laboratories and 1 exam.
04. Construct C code with no memory management errors.
- 5 lectures cover specific topics of memory allocation, file I/O and higher level data structures Students are required to write C code with correct memory management usage in 4 laboratories, the assignment and the exam.
05. Determine the output of a given C program.
- Students are shown code samples in lectures where a walkthrough of the code with associated outputs is provided. Students are required to write down the output of given C programs in 1 exam.
