    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I feel that the skills I have acquired in this course have positioned me well for career opportunities. Further than the technical skills, the university equips students with current industry information by inviting speakers from relevant prominent organizations to interact with the students and address some of the questions about how what we are learning is applicable in the real world.

    Course highlights:

    More than just the skills required to kick start one's career, what I found especially incredibly empowering in this course is the preparation it provides one with prior to entering the workplace. The team projects one gets to tackle with people who work and think differently from you equips you with the ability to operate within a diverse team of people. The tight deadlines imply that while you're navigating your way around team dynamics, you also have to ensure you don't lose sight of the ultimate common goal.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    If you take this course, it is important that you have the undying passion for it because the amount of work you are expected to put in and the late hours will only be bearable if you enjoy it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Programming 2 is just a more detailed and extended version of programming 1. I believe this is a requirement because if you just skipped this class and moved on you would be loss.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of programming 2 were the projects we are assigned because the projects themselves can teach us a lot. It basically test our skills and what we learned from class.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice is always pay attention and when your working on the projects start early because it takes time ti figure out how to program and error checking to make sure you have a working program.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class especially if you just started learning to program because this class will help understand the basics in c# first. The teacher was someone who has actual experience and help you learn how to program by pushing you to your full potential. Joe does an amazing job teaching the students how to program. To ensure that we understand what we are doing he would always question the students to see if they understand and if they don't he will try to help them understand.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot from programming 1 it helped me understand how to read code and bit by bit I actually knew what I was doing as I was programming. The highlights of this course was working on the practicals which was basically where you would follow the TO DO's and make a working project. The first time I took this class I didn't understand anything but the second time I actually knew what I was doing step by step. I was able to create a program that displays different color and size rectangles that randomly appear on screen. It was a amazing accomplishment for me who didn't understand anything at the beginning to program a working project.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always pay attention and don't be afraid to ask question because asking question doesn't mean your not smart it means you want to be smarter than you already are.
