COURSE OBJECTIVES


• Understand the need of different programming languages and the underlying issues
• Understand different elements of programming languages
• Learn comparison of programming languages and precise definitions to programming-language features
• Apply programming language knowledge and write better programs by exploiting modern language features such as higher-order functions and objects

COURSE LEARNING OUTCOMES (CLO)


1. Understand a wide range of programming language constructs and features.
2. Understand language paradigm, and elements of programming languages.
3. Describe, compare, and contrast various language features and problem solving using different language paradigms.
4. Apply programming languages knowledge and design algorithms that solve small-to-moderate scale computational problems
