PROGRAMMING IN JAVA I
Introduction to programming in Java and problem solving. Variables, data types, input/output, using objects and methods from the standard classes (such as String and Scanner), control structures, writing methods, arrays. Solving problems with algorithms and implementing algorithms in Java.
PROGRAMMING IN C++ I
This is an introductory course in computer programming covering basic data types, variables, flow of control, functions, and parameter passing, pointers and pass by reference, arrays, c strings and the C string library, basic input/output and structures. Examples in this course will concentrate on basic procedural algorithms for manipulating data.
PROGRAMMING IN JAVA II
Intermediate programming in Java and problem solving. Writing Java programs with multiple classes: constructors, visibility modifiers, static members, accessor and mutator methods, and arrays of objects. Inheritance, polymorphism, and interfaces. Sorting arrays of primitive data and arrays of objects. Exception handling. PREREQUISITE(S): CSC 211.
PROGRAMMING IN C++ II
This is an intermediate programming course in C++, intended as a follow-up course to CSC 261. Topics include object-oriented programming, user-defined classes and objects, constructors, C++ memory management including pointers and dynamic allocation, copy constructors, destructors, and operator overloading. The course will also cover inheritance and polymorphism. Optional topics, as time allows, will include templates and the C++ Standard Template Library. PREREQUISITE(S): CSC 261
INTRODUCTION TO INFORMATION SYSTEMS (FORMERLY IT 201)
This course demonstrates how information is used by organizations to conduct business and solve problems. This course presents information systems principles and demonstrates how they form an integral part of modern organizations. Topics include systems concepts; organizational processes; technological aspects of information systems; the Internet; IT security and ethical issues; database management; and systems development life cycle. In addition, students familiarize themselves with the DePaul computing environment and demonstrate competency at navigating that environment. PREREQUISITE(S): none
APPLIED NETWORKS AND SECURITY
This course introduces the networking and security technologies required to build and maintain a home or small-office network. Networking topics will include client/server application software configuration, network connectivity (cabling, switch and router configuration), basic IP addressing, network address translation and options for public Internet access services. Security topics will include typical threats and responses, firewalls, host hardening, password management and virtual private network (VPNs). The course has a lab component where students apply wired and wireless technologies to design and administer a small network with various applications. PREREQUISITE(S): none
PRINCIPLES OF DATA COMMUNICATIONS
2Theory and components of data communication systems, modes, codes, and error detection techniques for data transmission, network protocols and line control procedures, communication carrier facilities and system planning. PREREQUISITE(S): (TDC 311 or CSC373) and (IT 263 or TDC261)
INTRODUCTION TO LOCAL AREA NETWORKS
Principles of computer networks using LANs as an example. Issues in communications protocols and compatibility. Client-server versus peer-peer software applications. Network operating system services and management of local networks. PREREQUISITE(S): IT 263 OR TDC 261.
NETWORK INTERCONNECTION TECHNOLOGIES
A comprehensive study of network interconnection technologies including layer 2 bridges and switches, layer 3 routers and higher-layer gateways. The TCP and IP protocols will be studied in detail, including IP address management and router operations and management along with associated Internet protocols. RIP and OSPF protocols will be considered. Course includes laboratory work with protocol analyzers and router administration. PREREQUISITE(S): IT 263 or TDC 261.
