Computer programming impacts social media, digital games, and music. It leads to medical breakthroughs, business innovations, and engineering marvels. Strong math and analytical skills are the only necessary prerequisites needed for studying data structures, algorithms, digital structures and other key programming concepts in this course. Using real-world examples from Google, Netflix and other corporate trendsetters, you will use programming principles and applications in final projects.

Student profile

No previous coding experience is necessary, but students with some coding background will still find ways to challenge themselves and grow in this course. ALP students are encouraged to bring a computer with them to use during class and the evening study session.
