FSI-SCPAcad. year: 2020/2021
C++ is a modern programming language, with a focus on high performance. It is widely being used in very different contexts and has excellent support in both tools and libraries. The language received a huge overhaul in 2011 with C++11, lifting it into the 21st century.
Learning outcomes of the course unit
Students will obtain the basic skills and experiences of program writing and debugging using programming language C++.
The basic knowledge and experience with programming language (C#, Java ) are expected.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods
The course is taught through lectures explaining the basic principles and theory of the discipline. Exercises are focused on practical topics presented in lectures.
Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes
Graded course-unit credit is awarded on the following conditions: 30% on weekly programming assignments, 70% on the individual project. Participation in the lessons may be reflected in the final mark.
Language of instruction
The aim of this course is to get up-to-date on modern programming techniques, up to and including C++17. There is a wealth of numerical libraries for scientific computing in C++. Students will be able to develop modern scientific applications.
Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences
Attendance at lectures is recommended, attendance at seminars is required. Lessons are planned according to the week schedules. Absence from lessons may be compensated by the agreement with the teacher supervising the seminars.
