Goals for CSC 122 are:

  • Enhance the ability to program
  • Understand different data structures
  • Be able to use different data structures well

Course outcomes for CSC 122 are:

Upon completion of CSC 122, students will know:

  • how to use and build different data structures including stacks, queues, trees, graphs, and lists
  • a number of different searches and sorts (including O(nlogn) sorts)
  • how to identify Big-O for given algorithms
  • how to completely document code and programs
  • how to thoroughly test a program (including most error conditions)
  • how to identify some potential security issues with code being developed
  • the importance of designing before coding and practice it when warranted.

Program outcomes for CSC 122 are:

  1. Analyze a complex computing problem and to apply principles of computing and other relevant disciplines to identify solutions.
  2. Design, implement, and evaluate a computing-based solution to meet a given set of computing requirements in the context of the program’s discipline.
  3. Communicate effectively in a variety of professional contexts.
  4. Recognize professional responsibilities and make informed judgments in computing practice based on legal, ethical, and moral principles.
  5. Function effectively as a member or leader of a team engaged in activities appropriate to the program’s discipline.
  6. Apply computer science theory and software development fundamentals to produce computing-based solutions.
  7. Learn new areas of technology
