Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to

  • describe important concepts of a modern programming language
  • convert content of natural language programming tasks into executable small programs
  • apply practices and tools during the implementation of small programms
  • implement and analyze selected algorithms

Subject of course

The following topics are covered in this course:

  • Procedural programming concepts (variables, data types, operators, branching, loops, arrays, subroutines)
  • Input/Output
  • Recursion
  • Basic algorithms (searching, sorting)
  • Fundamental development methods (procedural abstraction, checking correctness, debugging) and programming tools inclusive a development environment.

Java is used as programming language.

Teaching methods

  • Lectures with discussions (live stream in TUWEL, recorded lectures in LectureTube)
  • Exercise sheets as a preparation for labs
  • Discussion of solved exercises during labs (if online, then in ZOOM)
  • Tests
    • Placement tests for competence level 2 and 3 (voluntary)
    • TUWEL tests for consolidation of basics
    • Practical programming tests
