C++ Programming


This is a introductory course to the C++ programming language. C++ is a general purpose programming language that supports various computer programming models such as object-oriented programming and generic programming. By learning C++, students will be able to create applications that run on a wide variety of hardware platforms. This course will help students develop programming skills, knowledge of data structures and object-oriented programming and introduce them to algorithm design.

This class provides students with a solid foundation C++. Students have 1hr lab time in class. After this class students can apply the knowledge to summer internship, robotics or programming contests.
