Introduction to Informatics (INHN0001) WS21/22

Intended Learning Outcomes

After successful completion of this module, students will understand the essential concepts of computer science at a basic, practical, but scientific level: Algorithms, syntax and semantics, and efficiency in terms of memory usage or time. Students will be able to solve manageable algorithmic problems and program simple distributed and concurrent applications in Java or a similar object-oriented language. Students understand the underlying concepts and models of these programming languages and are therefore able to learn other imperative and object-oriented programming languages independently.
