CS 205 - Engineering Software


Much of Computer Science stems from three ideas: you can define things in terms of themselves; you can treat procedures and data as one and the same;  and names make things more useful.  Although simple, these ideas have profound implications. The course will enable students to appreciate, use and understand these ideas in a manner that is useful and interesting, regardless of a student’s major. (Y)
