CISC 130 - 01 Intro-Program&Prob Solving-Sci - T - - - 0800 - 0940 OSS 432
CRN: 40819 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

CISC 131 - 02 Intro-Programming&Prob Solving - T - - - 1330 - 1510 OSS 431
CRN: 43303 4 Credit Hours This course is designed for students with majors in the Department of Computer and Information Sciences and focuses on logical thinking, the design and implementation of algorithms in a procedural language, testing, correctness, and the use of common programming structures such as arrays. In addition, basic machine concepts are covered including hardware organization and representation of information in the machine. The typical student will be adept at using the computer but will have no prior programming experience. Engineering and science majors should take CISC 130. Please see your academic advisor to ensure you select the appropriate class. Lab included. NOTE: Students who receive credit for CISC 131 may not receive credit for CISC 130
