ICS 211: Introduction to Computer Science II (3 credits)

Course Description

Reinforce and strengthen problem-solving skills using abstract data types and introduce software development practices. Emphasize the use of searching and sorting algorithms and their complexity, recursion, object-oriented programming, and data structures. (3 hours lecture)

Pre-Requisite(s): A grade of C or better in ICS 111 or consent of instructor.

Student Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of the course, the student will be able to:

  • Use and implement abstract data types such as lists, stacks, queues, and trees.
  • Select the appropriate searching or sorting algorithm based on the algorithm's behavior.
  • Develop recursive algorithms and programs.
  • Use standard libraries or packages as well as advanced object-oriented programming techniques (polymorphism, inheritance, and encapsulation).
  • Produce robust and secure programs using exception handling and extensive program testing.
