Course Description

The rise of technology is increasingly affecting our everyday lives — from work, commerce, entertainment, social networking and more. Computer programming has now become a core skill, on par with language and mathematics and software engineering is a driver of economic growth, offering millions of jobs worldwide.

In this course, you will learn how to write and run simple programs without having any previous programming experience. To provide context and motivation, examples and practical exercises relate loosely to different courses that you may progress onto.

The module uses a single programming language called Java and a programming environment called IntelliJ IDEA. However, it develops transferable programming skills by focusing on the fundamental concepts used in the majority of modern programming.
