This is an introductory course to computer programming and related mathematical/logic background for students without a Bachelor in Computer Science or in Computer Engineering. The objective is to smoothly introduce the student to the programming concepts and tools needed for typical data processing and data analysis tasks. The course consists of lectures and practice in computer labs.
The course is ANNUAL: so, classes will start in September and finish in May. Hence, the first exam date for students attending the course this year for the first time will be at the end of May: there will be a written/lab exam first, if you succeed, then you are admitted to the second part of the exam, the oral.
As a facilitation, we allow students who wish to do so, to take a partial test (a midterm) during the winter exam session (which is for A.Y. 22/23 students). If interested, we ask you to send us an email (with subject MidTerm_P4DS) a week before the exam asking us to attend the midterm, for organizational reasons.
Lessons on Wednesday 16-18 and Friday 14-16, room H
