The student will design and develop a text editor from the ground up.
COMP 1111Microcomputer Applications
MATH 8Computer Mathematics Desc.Introductory Computer Mathematics begins with a review of some basic mathematical concepts then presents topics in algebra, trigonometry, and computing.
ACCT 101Accounting Principles Desc.This course is an introduction to accounting and its role in business. The study of accounting principles is intended to give the Computer Programmer Analyst student a well-developed background in basic business. To this end, Accounting Principles is a part of the student's basic business education.
COMP 32Game Programming Using Flash
COMP 211Program Design Desc.In this course the student will learn the techniques and tools to analyze and develop well structured, robust logic for computer programs. This course will address both legacy (process driven) and GUI (event driven ) systems environments.
COMP 1101Visual Basic II Desc.This is an advanced course in Windows programming. The student will manipulate an Access database within a Visual Basic.Net program. The student will learn parameters and functions, debugging, error trapping and handling, data validation and arrays. The student will receive an introduction to classes.
COMP 1081MS Operating Systems Desc.This course is an expansion on previously covered operating systems and environment for students enrolled in three-year Computer Programmer Analyst program. The course will concentrate on system management, security, customization, and configuration with a practical experience gained in labs.
COMP 1200C++ Programming Desc.This course provides a comprehensive introduction to C++ programming. The course introduces the syntax and usage of C++, encouraging the student to progress to abstract data types and object-oriented programming. A disciplined approach to program development and to producing readable programs is emphasized. Topics covered include I/O files, arrays, functions, strings and pointers. The course is not intended as an introduction to programming course.
COMP 1102Advanced Visual Basic Desc.This is an advanced course in Windows programming. The student will manipulate an Access database within a Visual Basic.Net program. The student will learn parameters and functions, debugging, error trapping and handling, data validation and arrays. The student will receive an introduction to classes.
COMP 210COBOL Programming Desc.This is the first course in building understanding and competence in structured programming using COBOL. Students will gain awareness of the importance of structured programming methodology, to produce maintainable programs. Lectures and programming assignments are designed to provide the student with a working knowledge of report production, control breaks and data validation.
CARE 91Career Strategies Desc.This course is designed to help students develop, practice and apply the oral and written communication skills necessary for a successful career search. A major component of this course will be development of professional (computer-generated) career search materials and effective career search techniques. Students will use these materials to apply for jobs/placements in their field. In addition, students will gain greater self-awareness by engaging in personal development activities and will develop an understanding of the changing nature of work and economy.
COMP 206Enterprise Web Development Desc.This course will teach the student how to integrate basic web skills into an Enterprise/Commercial environment while introducing newer web technologies into established sites. These technologies will include expansion on uses of internet protocols (ftp, http, https), W3C Consortium standards, web-based client/server applications, integrating database technologies and scripting languages such as active server pages and JavaScript pages with concentration on the overall relationship of these components in an Enterprise environment.
COMP 333OOP Using C++ Desc.This course introduces the C++ programmer to object-oriented design and programming. Expanding on the topics coved in COMP 1200, the students are taught how to write classes, class inheritance, class derivation and linked lists. Concepts of data abstraction, information hiding, dynamic allocation of memory and software reusability are used.
COMP 220Client Server Desc.This course is an introduction to the concepts of client/server computing. It discusses both the theory and practical side of this vast topic. The theory side of the course examines advantages, concerns and implementation using real world examples. The practical portion of the course teaches classes, object hierarchy, and server side programming using PHP and MySQL.
COMP 251Advanced Programming (COBOL) Desc.A second course in writing and maintaining COBOL programs.
