COMP 131 Fundamentals of Computer Science

Computer Science is about the organization of information and the design of processes that use it. This course teaches students to think computationally - how to break down processes into components that can then be fully described - and to acquire other habits necessary for a computer scientist. Students should come out of the course able to write simple, but complete, programs of their choosing, and should also be able to diagnose problems in unfamiliar programs.
