CIS 1033 - Computer Science I

3 Credits
This is an introductory programming course for computer science majors. Concepts are presented in the context of working examples and exercises. Language syntax and computing paradigms are studied. Programming projects are used to reinforce key programming notions, including problem solving, decision making, iteration, data types, functions, and objects.

Course Availability: Offered Fall Semester Only

Corequisite: CIS 1023 Introduction to Computing*  or basic computer skills and instructor permission and CIS 1031 Computer Science I Lab  

Course Level Objectives
