Syllabus

This unit provides a foundation in the key concepts of computer programming. While the emphasis is on developing understanding of fundamental programming constructs, students will be required to apply this knowledge to a range of problems in a computer gaming context and utilising current game engine technology.

Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Analyse the requirements of simple programming problems and develop suitable solution algorithms and flowcharts;

2. Select appropriate data types and control structures and implement simple programs;

3. Interpret compiler messages to resolve syntax errors and employ debugging techniques to resolve logic error;

4. Explain key concepts of program design and implementation, including object-oriented programming techniques; and

5. Construct programs that include the use of arrays, functions, parameter passing, classes and objects.
