This is the first course in the C#.NET programming sequence. 

Intended Outcomes for the course

Upon successful completion students should be able to:

  • Create C#.NET programs that solve simple business problems 
  • Validate user input 
  • Construct a C#.NET class based on a UML class diagram 
  • Perform a test plan to evaluate his/her work 
  •  Adequately document C#.NET programs

Course Activities and Design

This course is presented with a combination of lectures and laboratories. Students will 
be expected to complete programming assignments. 

Outcome Assessment Strategies

Students will be expected to successfully complete a group of C# projects during 
the course. Each assignment should be assessed using these criteria: 
 

  • The program fulfills program requirements 
  • The program adequately handles exceptional conditions 
  • The program follows clearly defined standards 
  • The program is tightly cohesive and loosely coupled 
  • The program is user friendly 
  • The program is easily maintainable 
  • The program is thoroughly tested
