Fundamentals Of Programming With Algorithms And Logic –


(3 credits)

This course provides students with a basic understanding of programming development practices. Concepts covered include the application of algorithms and logic to the design and development of computer programs to address the problem solving requirements associated with business information systems. This course will cover procedural programming concepts including data types, controls structures, functional decomposition, arrays, and files.

This undergraduate-level course is weeks. This course is available as part of a degree or certificate program. To enroll, speak with an Enrollment Advisor.
