Computer programming (CSE101) introduces
students (with or without previous
programming experience) to the fundamentals
of computer programming
in Python, with applications across the
sciences. In this course, students will
explore fundamental algorithms and data
structures, up to and including binary
trees, using a mixture of procedural,
recursive, and object-oriented techniques.
Upon completion of this course, students
will have a solid foundation in the culture
and practice of modern programming,
and the basic skills to solve real-world
problems using efficient, well-written programs
and open-source tools. These foundations
will be extended and completed
in CSE 102 and CSE 103.
