Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this course the student must:

  • understand the syntax and be familiar with the programming environment of C (eg. editor, compiler, software libraries, reference manuals, online help)
  • handle with relative ease the basic programming structures: data types, variables, constants, assignments, expressions, loops and control structures
  • understand and be able to use the abstract data types (arrays, strings), the functions, recursion, the scope of variables, the pointers and the structures
  • use and be familiar with formatted input/output, the C preprocessor, files and the arguments of main
  • be able to analyze existing modular C-programs and determine their function
  • be able to design and implement solutions to problems through computer programming in C.
