Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2018-2019.

Programming and problem solving using Python. Emphasizes principles of software development, style, and testing. Topics include procedures and functions, iteration, recusion, arrays and vectors, strings, an operational model of procedure and function calls, algorithms, exceptions, object-oriented programming, and GUIs (graphical user interfaces). Weekly labs provide guided practice on the computer, with staff present to help. Assignments use graphics and GUIs to help develop fluency and understanding.

When Offered Fall, Spring, Summer.

Permission Note Students may not enroll in CS 1110 if they have taken or are also enrolled in CS 2110/ENGRD 2110, CS 2112, or have taken or are currently enrolled in a course offered or cross-listed with a CS number 3000 or above. (Students looking to learn Python rather than learn how to program should take CS 1133 instead). Students who have affiliated with the computer-science major may not enroll.
Prerequisites/Corequisites Assumes basic high school mathematics (no calculus) but no programming experience.
Forbidden Overlaps Forbidden Overlap: due to a partial overlap in content, students will receive 6 credits instead of 8 if they take CS 1110 and one of the following: CS 1112, CS 1115, INFO 1100, VISST 1100.

Distribution Category (MQR-AS)

  • All students (not just engineers!) may opt to enroll in a 1-credit Academic Excellence Workshop (AEW) to be taken in conjunction with this course. AEWs are weekly collaborative problem-solving workshops designed to enhance student understanding of course material. AEWs are facilitated by upper-level engineering students. They are graded S/U based on attendance. In order to attend an AEW, you must enroll in an AEW section, listed under course number ENGRG 1010.
