Welcome back!

 

Introduction:

 

This course starts with an introduction to computing, then talks about computer organization and architecture, and goes into different storage concepts like bits, main & mass memory, information representation, numbering systems, Boolean operations, gates, Boolean circuits, then demonstrate a proposed machine language/instruction set, it also talks about some traditional programming concepts, procedures & functions, and implementation (translation, linking, and loading), after that it shows the algorithm representation & discovery techniques, flowcharting, pseudo coding, iterative structures, at the end it introduces C Programming, starting with formatted input/output in C language, expressions in C language, one-way, two way, & multiple-way selections in C.

The lab introduces the idea of computer architecture, HW & maintenance, it demonstrates some major DOS commands, Windows Interface, Files & Folders, using the Internet, Email, & Web Search, there is also a part dedicated to MS Office: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, and Visio, there is also a section for applying digital logic and data representation techniques using different software packages, the last part of the course aims to train the student on writing C Programs with MS Visual Studio 6.0 or any other development environment, mainly formatted input/output, expressions, and so on.
