Possible changes to your unit's learning activities and assessment items
For the remainder of 2020, resulting from Australian Government's directives requiring physical distancing and restrictions on movement because of the COVID-19 pandemic, any exams that are required for assessment in a unit will be online exams. Online exams may also use online proctoring to help assure the academic integrity of those exams. Please contact your unit convener with any questions.
While the University has made efforts to ensure that Unit Outlines reflect a unit’s learning activities and assessment items, any changes to Australian Government directives because of the COVID-19 pandemic may require changes to these during the semester to ensure the safety and well being of students and staff. These changes will not be updated in the published unit outline, but will be communicated to you via your unit’s UCLearn(Canvas) teaching site. Any changes made will continue to meet the unit’s learning outcomes, as described in the Unit Outline.

This unit provides an introduction and overview to computer systems, information technology and software technology from a technological point of view. The unit covers the mathematical and theoretical foundations of computer science, including Boolean logic, an overview of computer architecture as well as the fundamental concepts of modern programming languages. Students will learn basic web programming and will develop small event-driven applications using a Graphical User Interface. Data structures include arrays. Those parts of the software engineering process, in particular testing and debugging, which are applicable to an introductory subject are incorporated. The subject also includes an introduction to graphics, image processing and working with relational databases. The unit finishes with an introduction to human-computer interaction.
On successfully completing this unit, students will be able to:
1. Review, analyse, and synthesise the theoretical foundations of information technology (including Boolean logic);
2. Calculate and convert binary numbers;
3. Design and write HTML webpages, including CSS;
4. Demonstrate strong competency in applying fundamental programming concepts and data structures to create small software applications using a graphical user interface and a variety of controls for user interaction;
5. Plan and execute the development of programs that can access databases and files;
6. Employ advanced programming principles and explain why these principles are important;
7. Demonstrate the ability to critically analyse a problem and to provide a solution in the form of software applications;
8. Test software applications in a systematic and efficient way; and
9. Apply fundamental principles of human-computer interaction.
