Semester of Instruction


Objectives and Content

The course focuses on the ability to translate theoretical knowledge about algorithms, data structures, and complexity to efficiently be able to perform the complete process of analyzing a problem, estimate the running time of suggested solutions, and to implement a running program.

Learning Outcomes

At the completion of INF237 the student should:

  • be able to go quickly from an algorithmic problem, given by an input-output specification, via design, analysis and coding, to an implementation of an efficient algorithm, using the right data structures.
