College of Business (WBUAD)
Programming Concepts
This course presents a language-independent introduction to programming concepts in design and implementation. Topics covered include data types, control structures, arrays, files, functions, top-down modules design, and data validation. The course discusses the design issues of the various languages construct, examining the design choices for these constructs in some of the most common programming languages, and critically comparing design alternatives.

The goal of this course is to provide a language-independent introduction to programming concepts that help students learn general programming topics, structured programming principles, and basic programming tools.

Upon completion of the course, students will be able to:

1. Differentiate the levels of programming languages.

2. Identify the types of programming languages used to create software.

3. Understand what programs are, and understand the basic components of computer program.

4. Explain the general program development process.

5. Understand the three fundamental control structures: sequential, selection, and repetition.

6. Identify the types of data files.

7. Use the basic terminology of object-oriented programming.

8. Explain the different types of data that computers use.

9. Use concepts of modular design and structured programming to design and build simple programs, subprograms, procedures, and functions.

Located on the Daytona Beach Campus, the Jack R. Hunt Library is the primary library for all students of the Worldwide Campus. The Chief Academic Officer strongly recommends that every faculty member, where appropriate, require all students in his or her classes to access the Hunt Library or a comparable college-level local library for research. The results of this research can be used for class projects such as research papers, group discussion, or individual presentations. Students should feel comfortable with using the resources of the library.
