Course Number and Title: CSC 264 Applied Computer Capstone
In this course, students design and program workplace applications using skills and knowledge learned in previous courses.
- Formulate an optimal solution by analyzing user requirements. (CCC 1, 2, 5, 6; PGC 2, 3, 5)
- Compare language constructs of major programming languages. (CCC 2, 5, 6; PGC 2, 3, 5)
- Develop online applications using current web programming techniques. (CCC 1, 2, 5, 6; PGC 1, 2, 3, 5)
See Core Curriculum Competencies and Program Graduate Competencies at the end of the syllabus. CCPOs are linked to every competency they develop.
Upon completion of this course, the student will:
- Formulate an optimal solution by analyzing user requirements.
- Formulate the user requirements suitable for program development.
- Examine the various interface design options.
- Develop technical documents to implement project development.
- Produce user interfaces that incorporate various graphical user interface (GUI) controls.
- Choose appropriate languages and tools for the project.
- Compare language constructs of current major programming languages.
- Compare simple data types of current major programming languages.
- Compare user defined data types of current major programming languages.
- Compare library supports of current major programming languages.
- Choose programming languages for specific application areas.
- Develop online applications using current web programming techniques.
- Develop optimal solutions for client-side programming.
- Develop optimal solutions for server-side programming.
- Examine potential bottlenecks between client-side and server-side traffic.
- Select current web programming development tools.
Students must demonstrate proficiency on all CCPOs at a minimal 75 percent level to successfully complete the course. The grade will be determined using the Delaware Tech grading system:
Students should refer to the Student Handbook for information on the Academic Standing Policy, the Academic Integrity Policy, Student Rights and Responsibilities, and other policies relevant to their academic progress.
- Apply clear and effective communication skills.
- Use critical thinking to solve problems.
- Collaborate to achieve a common goal.
- Demonstrate professional and ethical conduct.
- Use information literacy for effective vocational and/or academic research.
- Apply quantitative reasoning and/or scientific inquiry to solve practical problems.
