TIETA10 Programming Technique C 5 ECTS

General description

Programming Technique consists of two separate 5 ECTS courses. The first of these concerns the C and the second the C++ programming language. The courses can be completed independently of each other, but it is recommended that students take the courses consecutively. The courses aim to deepen the general programming skills of the participants. Hence the courses are probably more demanding than the introductory programming courses High Level Programming or
Introduction to Object-Oriented Programming.

Learning outcomes

Students have the skills (especially with respect to memory management) required to construct fairly large modular programs using the C language.


The course introduces, among others, the basic C data types and their representation in memory, pointers, functions, parameter passing, recursion and dynamic memory management.
