This course introduces the concepts of abstraction as modelling and abstraction as encapsulation. Students will learn problem solving process with the aid of computer such as formulating a problem and expressing its solution in such a way that a computer can effectively carry it out. They will also learn the distinctive nature of computational thinking compared to engineering and mathematical thinking. The aim of this course is hence to enable students to derive simple algorithms and code the programs to solve some basic problems.

Learning Outcomes

  1. Describe the skills that are involved in computational thinking
