Reference Material
Course Goals
Outcomes of Instruction
1.
Design algorithms using different algorithms design techniques i.e. Brute Force,
Divide & Conquer, Dynamic Programming, Greedy Algorithms & Backtracking,
Branch & Bound.
2.
Analyse the time and space complexity of different algorithms by using standard
analysis techniques for recursive and non-recursive algorithms.
3.
Describe, compare, analyse, and solve general algorithmic problem types:
Sorting, Searching, String Processing, Graph and NP-Complete Problems.
Implement the algorithms, compare the implementations empirically, and apply
fundamental algorithms knowledge to solve real-world problems.
Student Outcomes Addressed by the Course (From ABET)
4.
(a) An ability to apply knowledge of computing and mathematics appropriate to the
program’s student outcomes and to the discipline
(b) An ability to analyze a problem, and identify and define the computing
requirements appropriate to its solution
(c) An ability to design, implement, and evaluate a computer-based system,
process, component, or program to meet desired needs
(d) An ability to function effectively on teams to accomplish a common goal
(e) An understanding of professional, ethical, legal, security and social issues and
responsibilities
(f) An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
(g) An ability to analyze the local and global impact of computing on individuals,
organizations, and society
(h) Recognition of the need for and an ability to engage in continuing professional
development
(i) An ability to use current techniques, skills, and tools necessary for computing
practice.
(j) An ability to apply mathematical foundations, algorithmic principles, and computer
science theory in the modeling and design of computer-based systems in a way that
demonstrates comprehension of the tradeoffs involved in design choices. [CS]
(k) An ability to apply design and development principles in the construction of
software systems of varying complexity. [CS]
