LEARNING AND TEACHING METHODS
The subject is delivered through a combination of lectures and workshops (combination of tutorial and individual/group work in a computer lab). The subject consolidates the introductory C programming exposure students will have attained through COMP10002 Foundations of Algorithms or COMP20006 Programming the Machine.
INDICATIVE KEY LEARNING RESOURCES
Students have access to lecture notes, lecture slides and tutorial worksheets. The subject LMS site also contains links to recommended resources relating to programming and algorithmics, and advanced problems for students who want to extend themselves.
CAREERS / INDUSTRY LINKS
The subject provides students with intermediate-level, multi-module programming experience in C, and hands-on practicum with algorithmic analysis and development. It is highly relevant to any career involving “big data”, and covers the staple of technical interviews by companies such as Google, Microsoft and Amazon. There is every expectation that the subject will incorporate guest lecture(s) from leading figures in algorithmics.
