SIT111 is the foundation unit for the Bachelor Computer Science degree. It emphasises the role that a professional computer scientist plays in the development of complex computer solutions. It introduces students to the major areas within computer science including: number systems, hardware, software, operating system, software development, algorithms design and advanced topics such as data science. Students will explore the role of abstraction in computer science by adopting the computational thinking. This unit will prepare students for subsequent inquiry into cloud computing, cognitive computing or data science, and it will allow students to demonstrate competence in implementing algorithm in a cross-platform programming language - Python.


 Practical tasks 25%, project work 12.5%, project portfolio 12.5%, examination 50%
