Course Description: In this course, students learn the concepts of computer programming and practice them using C language.
Unit 1: Introduction, Pseudocode, Data type, Operators, Expressions and statements, Operator precedence vs. order of evaluation, Type casting, Integral promotions, Conversions (standard type and arithmetic), if-else condition, for loop, while loop, do while loop, Jump statements
Unit 2: 1-D arrays, Strings, 2-D arrays, Structure and Union, Pointers, Functions, Recursions, Header files (math.h, time.h, custom headers), External functions
Unit 3: Pointers, Arrays vs. pointers, Pointers to pointers and pointers to functions, Bitwise operators, struct and union, Pre-processor directives and macros, I/O handling
Unit 4: Dynamic memory allocation, Linked lists, Command line arguments, Standard libraries
- Class Schedule (Section A)
- Class: Monday 09.00 AM - 11.00 AM, Lab: Monday 03.00 PM - 05.00 PM, Tute: Tuesday 03.00 PM - 05.00 PM
- Course Ethics
- Students are strictly advised to avoid the unethical practices in the course including tests and practice components.
- It is best to try to solve problems on your own, since problem solving is an important component of the course.
- You are allowed to discuss class material, problems, and general solution strategies with your classmates. But, when it comes to formulating or writing solutions you must work/implement by yourself.
- You are not allowed to take the codes from any source, including online, books, your classmate, etc. in the assignments and exams.
- You may use free and publicly available sources (at idea level only), such as books, journal and conference publications, and web pages, as research material for your answers. (You will not lose marks for using external sources.)
- You may not use any paid service and you must clearly and explicitly cite all outside sources and materials that you made use of.
- Students are not allowed to post the code/report/any other material of course assignment/project in public domain or share with any one else without written permission from course instructors.
- We consider the use of uncited external sources as portraying someone else's work as your own, and as such it is a violation of the Institute's policies on academic dishonesty.
- Instances will be dealt with harshly and typically result in a failing course grade.
- Cheating cases will attract severe penalties.
