First-Year Computer Science
First-Year Courses in Computing Systems
COIS 1010H – The Digital World
Digital systems have redefined how we work, communicate and play: just think about the World Wide Web, mobile camera phones, video games and e-business. Core topics examine the underlying technologies of both computing and information systems and how they have become an integral and indispensable part of our daily lives.
COIS 1020H – Programming for Computing Systems
Programming for computing systems requires a solid foundation in the software development process, including algorithmic design, abstraction, implementation, testing and documentation. Core topics include sequencing, selection, iteration, simple data types, expressions and arrays, as well as the object-oriented notions of classes, methods, inheritance and polymorphism.
Prerequisite: COIS 1010H
Things of Note
- COIS 1010H and 1020H are offered in both the Fall and Winter term. Students majoring in Computer Science who have had some programming experience may consider enrolling in both COIS 1010H and 1020H in the Fall term to increase their options for additional COIS courses earlier in their program.
- COIS Co-op students (and students who wish to shadow Co-op), please refer the the First-Year Co-op Schedule
