Introduction to Computing: Biomedical Course Outline (CS-132)

An overview of Computer Science and information technology with applications.

Specific Objective of Course

An overview of Computer Science and information technology with applications. Number systems and Boolean algebra. Programming forms the core of Computer Science. Other aspects of the subject are either side-issues, or specializations from the basic programming core. Therefore Computer Programing is the core first-year course in all Electronics, Telecommunication, Biomedical & Computer Science degrees, and is an essential prerequisite to almost all that follows in the second and third year.

After the completion of the course, the students should be able to:
i) To write real working programs, albeit ones on a much smaller scale than those used in industry or sold as commercial software applications.
ii) Being able to think logically so one can predict in advance the behavior of a system working to fixed set of rules.
iii) Computing and execution of C Program.
