Описание программы

This unit presents an up-to-date introduction to computer science and programming. It introduces the foundations of computer architecture together with data representation, manipulation and storage. The use of algorithms for problem solving is introduced. The unit further introduces the concepts of operating systems and computer networks. Against these concepts fundamental programming methods, constructs and concerns will be introduced using the Java programming language.

Aims and objectives

  • develop an understanding of the fundamentals of hardware and software technologies that underlie contemporary computer-based information systems
  • develop an understanding of the underlying structure and theories of computers and programming
  • provide the skills needed to develop algorithms for programming solutions
  • provide the skills needed to write simple programs in Java


This course is assessed by a three-hour unseen written examination.
