Current Courses

CS5001: Intensive Foundations of Computer Science
Introduces systematic problem solving through programming. Offers students an opportunity to learn how to analyze a problem, how to divide and organize the problem into appropriate components, how to describe the problem in a computer language, how to analyze and understand the behavior of their programs, and how to test that their programs are working correctly. Additionally, introduces a method of program design called object-oriented programming and various ways to organize data, including a discussion of their advantages and disadvantages. To practice the course concepts, students undertake assignments ranging from small, highly specified programming tasks to larger open-ended problems where students design and code their own solutions.
Modality: hybrid (SF), online (Vancouver)
CS5008: Data Structures, Algorithms, and their Applications in Computer Systems
This course presents an integrated approach to the study of data structures, algorithms, and their applications within computer systems. We introduce a variety of systems-related topics (models of computation, computer architecture, compilation, system software) and fundamental techniques for solving algorithms (divide-and-conquer, dynamic programming, graph algorithms) as they apply to computer systems. The integration of topics is demonstrated through the implementation of fundamental data structures (lists, queues, trees, maps, graphs) in the C programming language. Additional breadth topics can include programming applications that expose students to primitives of different subsystems such as multi-threading.
