Hello guys. If you’re yet to have gained University admission, I present to you today, a list of the courses that if you go for, you’ll get to study programming when you become a sophomore.
Normally, it is very bad to just pick a course of study because of majority opinion, or course popularity. You need to sit back, and analyze the courses you can cope with till you streamline your list to a single course.
I’m talking about programming and maybe you’re not sure what programming is, let me be your guide at this point.
WHAT DOES ‘PROGRAMMING’ MEAN?
Programming can be defined in various ways, and four of them are:
1. Programming is the process of taking an algorithm and encoding it into a notation, a programming language, so that it can be executed by a computer
2. Programming is the process of writing computer programs.
3. To program is to provide (a computer or other machine) with coded instructions for the automatic performance of a task.
4. To program is to input (instructions for the automatic performance of a task) into a computer or other machine.
LIST OF UNIVERSITY COURSES INVOLVING PROGRAMMING
- Computer Science: Computer Science is the study of computers and computational systems. Unlike electrical and computer engineers, computer scientists deal mostly with software and software systems; this includes their theory, design, development, and application.
- Computer Engineering: What do computer engineers do? Computer hardware engineers “research, design, develop and test computer systems and components such as processors, circuit boards, memory devices, networks and routers,” according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics
- Systems Engineering: A systems engineer develops a system for a client. Some systems engineers work only with computer systems
- Surveying and Geoinfomatics: To be quite honest, I do not have a wide understanding of this course, but my Unit head in my Campus fellowship studies this course and works with coding most times, to compile a software.
- Software Engineering: From the name of he course, coding is obvious.
- Applied Engineering.
