Course description and aims

The aim of this course is to help students acquire basic knowledge and skills in computer science. Throughout the course, students tackle three problems, which are selected from the important topics in computer science --- algorithms, computational complexity, numerical computation, simulation, cryptography, etc.

Student learning outcomes

At the end of this course, students will acquire basic knowledge and skills in computer science.

Keywords

computer science, programming, algorithms, computational complexity, numerical computation, simulation, cryptography.

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

This class is conducted as a remote class. During the class,
programming exercises will be conducted along with lectures. Homework
and report assignments to confirm understanding will be given in the
class. There are also some quizzes in the class.
