Department Notes:

Course objectives: Students will learn constructs of the C++ programming language sufficient to implement an object-oriented design. In the process of learning the language, they will be applying knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering. As many of their projects require a fair bit of software engineering, they will also be making design decisions (algorithm, data structure, time-vs-space, etc) and considering various implementation trade-offs.
