This unit is the foundation unit for the Bachelor Computer Science degree. It covers an introduction to the major areas within computer science including: hardware, software, data storage and manipulation, algorithms and their development, program stages (development, compilation, execution, testing and debugging).
Students will explore the role of abstraction in computer science by examining the relationships between programming environments (from low-level assembly through to high level languages) and learning how these programs interact with and operate on the underlying hardware and operating systems they execute on. The professional role that a computer scientist plays in the development of complex computer solutions will be emphasised.
