Goals and objectives
of the course in terms
of competences and skills
|The goal of the course is to prepare students for further computer science courses, to teach to algorithmize the problem and to check solution by implementing the software. The main objectives are to provide academic knowledge on algorithms, their properties and their development, formal syntax, semantics, data types, structures, data processing operations, as well as to provide practical knowledge about high-level programming languages. The result of the course is archived by developing a set of documented programs of varying complexity.|
