Students will learn about information technology/computer concepts including history, security, and societal issues in computing as well as input/output systems, computer hardware, networking and operating systems and software. Student will also learn the basic units of logic: sequence, selection and looping and will apply algorithmic solutions to problem-domain scenarios using commercial and open source applications.
Students will learn to represent programming concepts as “objects” that have data fields and associated procedures known as methods. Students will implement classes such as support static, instance method, inheritance, polymorphism, exception handling, and object serialization. Commercial and open source programs and applications will be used.
Students will use developer strategies to manipulate data, present database systems theory, and develop database applications. Students will learn to import and export data, manipulate table properties, make advanced queries, and run basic SQL forms and reports. Knowledge and skills of data modeling, diagramming, query writing, and design theory will be developed.
