6cp; 3hpw, on campus, weekly
Requisite(s): 31251 Data Structures and Algorithms

Fields of practice: Enterprise Systems Development and Quantum Information Science



Algorithms are the heart of computer science and information technology. This subject moves beyond the basic material that introduces algorithms and data structures and looks at some of the more complicated algorithms, how to implement them and what they can be used for. Alongside this the subject delves into practical concerns of methods for dealing with apparently intractable computational problems, tools for selecting and evaluating algorithms and communicating effectively algorithmic strategies.
