Course Title: Programming in C/C++ Goal Areas: n/a Credits: 4
Course Description: This course introduces the C/C++ programming language and its foundational topics. In this course students will explore fundamental programming and computing concepts with a focus on problem solving, algorithm development and implementation. Topics included are: data types and memory concepts, arithmetic operators and mathematical expressions, conditional statements, repetition, arrays, functions, procedure and the basics of object-orientation.
Course Title: Introduction to Programming in Java (CS0) Goal Areas: n/a Credits: 4
Course Description: This course provides an introduction to the Java programming language and its foundational topics. In this course students will explore fundamental programming and computing concepts with a focus on problem solving, algorithm development and implementation. Topics included are: data types and memory concepts, arithmetic operators and mathematical expressions, conditional statements, repetition, arrays, methods and the basics of object-orientation.
Course Title: Programming in C# for .NET Goal Areas: n/a Credits: 4
Course Description: This course provides an introduction to object-oriented programming using the C# programming language. The majority of the course will be on the semantics of the C# language, a major component of Microsoft .NET development environment. Topics include: Visual Studio .NET integrated development environment, selected value and reference types, control structures, operators and expressions, methods, classes, and inheritance. Completion of this class will prepare the student for advanced topics in C#. Prerequisite: Math 1150 with a grade of C or better
Course Title: Object Oriented Programming (CS1) Goal Areas: n/a Credits: 4
Course Description: Students will learn object-oriented programming while creating algorithms.The basic principles of software engineering are emphasized. By doing their own Java projects, students will developproblem-solving skills and gain experience in detecting and correcting software errors.Procedures, recursion, and iteration will be presented in the development of algorithms. Inheritance and polymorphism are studied. The use of abstraction will be emphasized throughout the course.
Course Title: Data Structures and Algorithms (CS2) Goal Areas: n/a Credits: 4
Course Description: This course continues using abstract data types and the concepts presented in CSci 2001 and introduces stacks, queues, linked lists, and trees. This course also covers advanced programming topics of recursion, sorting methods, and complexity measures. This is an object-oriented programming course.
Course Title: Computer Architecture Goal Areas: n/a Credits: 4
Course Description: As an introduction to computer organization and structure, this course includes beginning machine and assembly language programming. Topics to be covered include logic gates and Boolean algebra, basic elements of computing devices, basic components of a computer, data representation and number systems, micro operations, microprogramming, and input-output programming.
Course Title: Web Programming in ASP.NET Goal Areas: n/a Credits: 4
Course Description: ASP.NET is a technology for creating web-based programs and services. This course introduces ASP.NET on the foundation of the prerequisite courses that taught the fundamentals of .NET framework, C# programming language, SQL Server database, and the primary development environment Microsoft Visual Studio.The main goal of this course is to teach the basics of creating and deploying Web applications utilizing ASP.NET technology. Besides using the C# programming language, the students will learn the commonly used ASP.NET controls included in Microsoft Visual Studio. The course includes the techniques of reading the data from a SQL Server database into a Web application and displaying it on a web page, as well as modifying and amending the database content.Prerequisites: CSci 1150 and CSci 1040
|4 Credits must be earned at NHCC
|Total Credits Required
The Application Programming Certificate helps students to build and develop an understanding for designing, coding, testing and debugging applications in various programming languages
Knowledge of Human Cultures and the Physical and Natural World, including:
- Writing programs to handle a specific job, such as a program to track inventory within an organization.
Intellectual and Practical Skills, including:
- Revising existing software to improve performance.
- Customizing generic applications for specific tasks.
- Writing custom web applications.
- Differentiating requirements of application programming from system programming.
Developmental Courses Some students may need preparatory course(s) in Math and/or English. Courses numbered below 1000 will not apply toward a degree.
