This course teaches competency in systems-level programming, particularly using C and C++.

Basic software-design techniques are taught, along with the tools commonly used in systems programming. No prior knowledge of C or C++ is assumed, but students must know how to program in some language such as Java. Prerequisite: CSCI0310.
