Course detail

Computers and Programming 2

FEKT-KPC2MAcad. year: 2018/2019

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.

Course curriculum

Algorithmization (extensions of basic knowledge from the previous semester). Definition of the task, the definition of inputs / outputs, expressing
an algorithm in meta-language, rewritting into programming language. Introduction to C language. Basic types of variables, derived types, constants, arrays.
Expressions, arithmetic conversions, arithmetic operators, shift operators, relation operators, logical operators, bitwise operators, assignment
operators, operator priority. Strings and their operators, library functions, standard library string.h. Commands, compound statements, branching commands, cycles and control commands. Flowchart. Function. Declaration of functions, methods of function calling, treatment events, recursion of functions. Advanced data types. Union, enum, dynamic variable, pointer. Objects. Lexical elements, constants and strings, classes, objects, object types. User interface of Microsoft Visual C++ Studio. Graphical components. Algorithms Finding maxima and minima, sorting. Programming with arrays, matrices operations. Programming with files in Windows. Database systems. Records, sorting, searching, statistics. Linking of databases.


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

The content and forms of instruction in the evaluated course are specified by a regulation issued by the lecturer responsible for the course and updated for every academic year.
