PROGRAMMING ENVIRONMENT

CSE1PE

2020

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject students are introduced to the steps involved in designing and creating a software solution to simple real-life problems. To enable students to design a program, the subject introduces the way to break down the problems into smaller parts and analyse them methodically by using simple techniques such as flow charts and pseudocodes. To enable students to create a program, the subject introduces various environments, tools and techniques that are commonly used in real life software program development. As the programming interface, the subject will introduce students to UNIX interface. In addition, the subject will also introduce students to programming languages used in many software solutions, namely C and Java.
