CS 210 Fundamentals of Computer Science I • 5 Cr.


Introduces computer science and programming for CS majors. Students learn design and implementation of algorithms and programming in a structured, modular language, with emphasis on problem solving, program design, and style. Prerequisite: MATH&141 (or higher), or placement by assessment in MATH&142 or above, or entry code.


After completing this class, students should be able to:

  • Solve computer programming problems using current industry standards in software engineering; editing, compiling, and executing code; which is structured in maintainable style with programmer comments (documentation).
  • Define the concepts of data types, specifically the use of primitive data versus object, accessing and creating methods, their parameters passed, and returned.
  • Use procedural decomposition to construct programming solutions using decision controls (if, else), repetitions (for, do while), and external file reading (secondary storage).
  • Utilize simple data structures such as arrays and classes to solve complex problems, and use an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) to fix potential errors identified with code testing concepts.
