Upon successful completion of this course, students are expected to be able to: describe the use of various data structure; explain and apply appropriate operations for maintaining common data structures; apply appropriate data structures and simple algorithms for solving computing problems; design computer programs by applying different data structures and related algorithms; explain the efficiency of some basic algorithms; and design efficient software solutions that are appropriate for specific problems.
This course serves as one of the foundation courses in Computer Science. It provides students with an understanding of the principles of data structures and algorithms in the design and development of computer software. Students will learn basic data structures and its use in different algorithms that are commonly used in making structured and efficient software programs. Part of the course will also cover a brief introduction in the analysis of algorithms. Students are expected to have taken an introductory course in programming using C/C++.
