COMP 123 - Core Concepts in Computer Science

This course introduces the field of computer science, including central concepts such as the design and implementation of algorithms and programs, testing and analyzing programs, the representation of information within the computer, and the role of abstraction and metaphor in computer science. The exploration of these central ideas will draw from the breadth of computer science, with an emphasis on two major application areas: multimedia processing (images, sound, and text) and robotics (control systems for autonomous robots). Course work will use the Python programming language. Every semester. Prerequisite(s): No prerequisites. (4 Credits)
