ENTD220 - Introduction to Python

Course Details

Course Code: ENTD220 Course ID: 4852 Credit Hours: 3 Level: Undergraduate

The course presents the principles of object-oriented programming using the Python language, one of the most increasingly preferred languages for programming today. Python is a high-level general-purpose programming language that is portable and used on different systems to include UNIX and Mac—it is platform independent. Python has been touted as one of the most powerful and easy to learn programming languages. The course addresses syntax, types, variables, strings, branching, loops, tuples, lists, dictionaries, functions, files, exceptions and other related concepts and terms in an effort to establish a solid foundation for more advanced programming using structured language. The course will also provide both conceptual and scenario based exercises, thus enabling students to experience the maximum amount of comprehension and retention of material covered. The Python interpreter is available online for free. This software is not provided by the course material grant and must be purchased/provided by the student. (Prerequisites: ENTD200 or ENGR200)
