CPST 1220 Introduction to Programming: Visual Basic

This introductory programming course assumes no previous programming experience and introduces programming in an "object-like" environment. The student is introduced to the use of problem-solving, logic skills and program design to develop simple computer-based solutions in Visual Basic. Students will write Visual Basic programs using elementary applied computing techniques including editing, calculation, decision branching, control looping, and file I/O. Note: This course does not count toward the requirements for a major or minor in Applied Computing Systems and Technology but can be used to satisfy a School of Continuing Studies Science Distribution Requirement (1 CPST course can be used for a Science distribution course).
