CS 505 - Computer Science Fundamentals


This foundation course is a broad based introduction to the basic topics of computer sciences. The course presents the basic organization and operation of modern computer systems, both hardware and software.  The general concepts of the algorithms are introduced and their importance to software design and implementation is studied by using simple programming assignments, mostly in modern Object-Oriented programming languages, to explore these concepts. The course also introduces important formal computer science topics such as computer organization, basic data structures (stacks, queues, trees, graphs, etc.) and data storages.
