Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will be able to explain the concepts of procedural programming and data abstraction and implement them in the C programming language. They will use design techniques to find solutions. They will use their knowledge about programming techniques, to create well-structured and documented programs. They will use basic tools from the field of software development to do so. In the practical course, students will learn to present programs and their solution concepts.
