Description

An introductory course in C programming for the PC. Covering the C compiler, variables, operators, decision statements, iteration loops, arrays and strings.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;

1.

Explain the processes by which a C programme is compiled

2.

Write basic C programs with variables and arithmetic operators.

3.

Use appropriate C programing statements to control flow of execution in a C programme.

4.

Design C programmes that are modular.

5.

Exercise good programming practices in the design of Programmes

Teaching and Learning Strategies

It is proposed that a workplace engagement component will be introduced to this module via a guest lecturer from industry, an industrial site visit or a work-based assignment where possible.
