    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course introduces you to the world of coding. It mostly uses Python programming and adds in a few weeks of Matlab. Both languages are similar so they are easy to work with. Coding is a great capability to have so I would recommend this course.

    Course highlights:

    In this course, we learned the basics of coding using Python Programming and Matlab. Using our knowledge of writing code, we went from making simple print functions to recreating the famous minesweeper game. This course teaches how to use basic one step functions and put them all together to create useable daily programs.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This class isn’t easy, but isn’t too difficult either. A couple pieces of advice I could give are to go to class and get help if you don’t understand a topic. You will not be exposed to the material if you skip lectures and you will not get practice coding if you skip labs. Also, if you are going to class and still can’t grasp the material, get help. You can go to tutoring hours with your professor and TA. There is also help throughout the campus, from former students to Computer Science tutoring at the Engineering library, you can always find help.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The CS department just changed this course over from teaching C++ to teaching Python. It's now way more intuitive and applicable to science/engineering careers.

    Course highlights:

    We learned the basics of python. Basically this entails learning lists, dictionaries, tuples, arrays, functions, methods, and combining them all together towards the end of the class to create your own scripts.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    First thing you should do is download a text editor on your personal computer. Most of the notes in class are interactive, and it is super helpful to be able to do them on your own computer while the professor is doing them.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class is a great introductory course into the field of computer science. The only issue is that the lectures are on a different pace than the labs, which leads to different material being taught in each portion of the class.

    Course highlights:

    The biggest highlight is that this class is designed to suit everyone's needs. The course may be more difficult for some but the more effort placed the higher the result. Syntax is the key to correct execution of code, the smallest of errors can cause the biggest mistakes.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always attend lectures and labs. Start your homework on Monday itself, if you have questions or things you are confused about you have the entire week to get your answers. Review the practice tests.
