Courses & Units
This unit extends the students' knowledge and experience of programming. It introduces dynamic data structures, foundational collection abstract data types, and computational algorithms and techniques. Programming is undertaken in Java and C and topics include: references and pointers, memory management, self-referential data structures, abstract data types and their implementation, and an introduction to algorithm complexity.

- specify abstract data types and implement them in both an object-oriented and a procedural programming context
- develop and analyse programs containing dynamic data structures through the application of knowledge of computing principles and technical skills
- employ pair-programming techniques while collaborating with peers
