This is the first course in Computer Science and Engineering. It introduces the design of computer algorithms and their implementation in the Java programming language. The prerequisite is MATH 115 or enrollment in MATH 141. No prior programming experience is assumed, but you should already have some experience using a computer. The goals of the course are

  • Introduce computational problem-solving techniques
  • Introduce the use of computers for the construction of software solutions
  • Introduce procedural abstraction
  • Introduce data abstraction and elementary concepts of object-oriented programming
  • Introduce the development of structured, modular algorithms and programs
  • Introduce the Java programming language.
  • Introduce a modern programming development environment: Eclipse.

I, Jose M. Vidal, will be teaching Sections 5 and 6. My office is at SWGN 3A51. The class homepage is the easy-to-remember Everything will be posted there.

Our Teaching Assistant(TAs) are: Shamik Roy Chowdhury <>, Humayun Kabir <>

Our Lab Assistants are: Caelan Reed Burris

Our texbook is Java: Introduction to Problem Solving and Programming (5th Edition) which we will be following closely. The textbook homepage has videos, exercise solutions, and other materials you will be interested in using.
