EB 2430 - Informatics Computing II

2 lecture hours 2 lab hours 3 credits
Course Description
This course is to introduce Java programming fundamentals and the basic concepts of algorithms and data structures to BioMolecular Engineering students who took the EB-2420 course as a prerequisite. Emphasis is placed on how to write Java programs using object-oriented concepts, analysis of algorithms and their complexity and performance, and concepts of data structures. The major topics to cover include Java fundamentals, Arrays and ArrayLists, sorting and search algorithms, Abstract Data Types (ADTs), Monte Carlo simulations, data structures based on LinkedLists, Stacks, Queues, and Trees. (prereq: EB 2420 )
