Course Outcomes:

This is a hands-on course intended to teach students computer programming in a graphical user interface environment. We use Visual Basic.NET as a vehicle for this because of its more intuitive interface. Students will learn how to create Visual Basic programs for a wide variety of applications using forms, objects, functions, procedures, arrays, and disk files. Grades will be based on two exams and homework assignments. They will accomplish the following objectives:
