The course aims to provide students with introductory elements to computer science and programming in the scientific field.
AIMS AND CONTENT
Acquire skillness with the fundamental concepts of programming using imperative procedural and object-oriented languages and related libraries, learning to create small programs or modify existing code
AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES
The students will familiarize with the principles of computational thinking. Learning outcome is to know how to deal with development environments and operating systems, to have a basic knowledge of imperative and object-oriented procedural programming languages and the use of applications. Also learning outcome is to know how to design, implement and validate a small sequential program starting from the informal specifications provided by the user, as well as understand, use, modify code produced by third parties.
The training objectives are in line with a Study Plan for the "Materials Scientist: Research Specialist" profile or for the "Materials Scientist: Technology Specialist" profile.
There are no prerequisites for the course

L'orario di tutti gli insegnamenti è consultabile all'indirizzo EasyAcademy.
The exam consists in the discussion of an essay prepared by the student on a programming project of his choice.
The purpose of the exam is to evaluate the student's ability to design, write, compile, link, execute and debug a simple code, and the ability to adapt his own code to the needs of third parties. Eligibility will be verified based on the points listed.
