Course detail

Selected Chapters from Programming

FSI-0VPAcad. year: 2018/2019

The course introduces students to the technology of the program writing and building, the formulation of selected classes of algorithms in the C programming language and the use of advanced data structures. The focus is also placed on developing large projects and the basics of teamwork. Explanation of all terms is performed by a using of practical examples.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

The course "Selected Chapters from Programming" allows students to gain knowledge of algorithms and data structures in a higher extent than in the basic compulsory courses.


Ability to operate a computer and knowledge of common operations with files is a prerequisite. At least partial knowledge of programming in any language is an advantage but not essential.

The goal is to to master the selected parts of programming. The idea is to complete missing input knowledge to improve the ability of candidates to right real programmes during their further study and practice.

Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences

Attendance at the seminars is controlled. An absence can be compensated for via solving given problems.
