Systems Programming using C Language – (Fall 2014)
C language is used everyday and everywhere. Whether your goal is to learn how to program small microcontrollers with small memory and power, like arduino or develop complex games and mobile apps, knowledge of C language would prove very helpful. C can even help you better understand other programming languages better.
This course is designed to help students with little programming experience or computer background learn the basics of computer programming. Moving quickly over the basics, we advance deeper into computer programming using the hugely popular C programming language as our language of choice. The course help student understand their device hardware better. As part of the course, we shall learn features like arrays, functions, structures, pointers and linked list of C through several programming exercises, LAB sessions, quiz and two major capstone projects as midterm and final exams.
