First Year Courses in Information 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 Science
Programming for computer science 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. Pre- or co-requisite: COIS 1010H or PHYS 1001H or MATH 1110H. Students without prior programming experience should take COIS 1010H as a prerequisite.
COIS – ADMN 1620H – Introduction to information systems
Wherever and whenever information is required, an information system is also required. Core topics include the use of information systems for strategic advantage, their basic underlying technologies, the types of information systems and how they are constructed, managed and replaced, as well as their ethical and legal use. Prerequisite: COIS 1010H
COIS 1400H – Programming for Data Science
Develops a solid foundation in the main concepts of data science and programming in Python. Core topics include repetition and selection structures, algorithm design techniques, file types, big data, data mining, and data visualization. Pre- or co-requisite: COIS 1020H.
