Minor students: register for the minor!
Application procedureYou apply via OSIRIS Student
Registration using OSIRISYes
After passing this course, students are able to:
  • transform a simple physics formula into an algorithm
  • create algorithms for simple graphical animations
  • use arrays as basic building blocks of algorithms
  • explain simple phenomena of algorithmic complexity
  • design programs according to an adequate object-oriented structure (such as using constructors, object variables, and split methods according to functionality)
  • provide a graphical representation of their code structure
  • write a program following the requirements of code style (such as naming, documentation, robustness against unexpected input, parameter passing, no redundant or unused code)
  • design meaningful interaction in programs
  • translate interaction into code (adherent to rules of code style using interaction methods and parameter passing)
  • debug their programs
Main goal of the course is to achieve fluency in programming by having a number of algorithms at hand that can be used for different applications, and getting experience in translating an idea into code. In addition, focus is put on programming style and structure.

Manual enrollment for this module via Osiris is only for Creative Technology students. If you want to take this module as a minor, register for the minor during the minor registration period. If you do not wish to take this module as a minor and are not a Create student, please contact K. Zalewska (
