BIFX 502 Foundations in Computer Science

This course provides students with an introduction to programming concepts and techniques used in problem solving. Students will study general programming concepts for the purpose of
data analysis. These concepts are demonstrated through the use of a modern programming language. Students will design, implement and test programs to solve analytical problems.
Students will develop the ability to logically plan and develop programs, and learn to write, test, and debug programs. Topics include file I/O, expressions, types, variables, branching, loops,
data access, data profiling, and data manipulation. Students will apply their knowledge through hands-on programming projects.
