Typical Semester: 2nd
Course Category: General Infrastructure Course

Learning Outcomes

As part of the course the student will learn and become familiar with the basic concepts of discrete mathematics. In particular, the course will teach students how to work with discrete structures, which are the abstract mathematical structures used to represent discrete objects and relationships between these objects. Also, the student will learn and understand mathematical reasoning in order to read, comprehend, and construct mathematical arguments.

The main objective of this course is the development of mathematical maturity of the student so that they can meet the course requirements in the disciplines where Discrete Mathematics find applications. Examples include Design and Analysis of Algorithms, Complexity Theory, Data Structures, Databases, Programming Languages, Parallel Computing, Distributed Systems, Artificial Intelligence, and Graphics.
