Course detail

Computers and Programming 2

FEKT-KPC2SAcad. year: 2017/2018

Course is focused on the basic knowledge of the programming language C and C ++. Students learn algorithmization specified tasks, design appropriate data structures, implementation of the program in C/C ++. There are presented some algorithms for processing of numeric and text data. Students will be introduced with the standard libraries, working with files, dynamic structures. Next part of the course deals with object-oriented programming in C ++. It is introduced the concept of classes, inheritance, overloading of operators. Students obtain practical experience in the implementation of tasks in Microsoft Visual Studio.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

The student is able to:
- explain the function of the C language statements,
- describe the properties of the basic data types,
- propose a structure for the representation of complex data,
- use functions included in the standard libraries,
- propose an algorithm working with multi-dimensional and one-dimensional array,
- propose an algorithm to sort a list of values,
- create a library of functions,
- create an interactive application.


The subject knowledge on the secondary school level is required. Further the basic knowledge of working with files in the Microsoft Windows environment is desirable.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods

Techning methods include lectures and computer laboratories laboratories. Students have to write a single project/assignment during the course.

Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes

up to 12 points from laboratories (6 points for the task in 2 exercises)
up to 30 points from homeworks (4 homeworks)
up to 28 points for the final test at the end of the semester
up to 30 points for an individual project in C / C ++
To pass the course it is necessary to develop an individual project.

Course curriculum

1. Introduction to C language, program structure, data types, standard output.
2. Expressions, operators, conversions, standard output.
3. Statements.
4. Arrays and pointers.
5. Strings in C, library for working with strings.
6. Structured data types – structure, union, enumeration.
7. Creating custom functions, library of functions, parameter passing.
8. Algorithms for sorting and searching.
9. Reading and writing files.
10. Abstract data types – list, queue, stack.
11. Summary of the basics of programming in C, platform-independent programming in C, ANSI C, standard library of C, compiler, preprocessor directives.
12. Introduction to object-oriented programming.
13. Applications with graphical user interface.


The aim of the course is to teach students the general programming habits, algorithmization of complex problems and usage of object-oriented approach to programming. Course is focused on C programming language and object-oriented programming in C + + using Microsoft Visual Studio.

Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences
