CISC 130 - 05 Intro-Program&Prob Solving-Sci - - - R - 1330 - 1510 OSS 431
CRN: 41153 4 Credit Hours (Formerly QMCS 130 and 230) Introduction to problem solving with computers, using programming languages common to science and engineering disciplines; logical thinking, design and implementation of algorithms; and basic programming structures. Introduction to hardware and software: how computers acquire, store, process, and output information; how computer systems are designed, programmed, and tested. Students will use both a scientific programming language and an application package designed to implement programming features at a level more accessible to non-programmers. This course is designed for students majoring in Engineering or the sciences. Majors in the Department of Computer and Information Sciences should take CISC 131. Please see your academic advisor to ensure you select the appropriate class. Lab included. NOTE: Students who receive credit for CISC 130 may not receive credit for CISC 131
