Prep Course Programming
You must be logged in before you can register for a course. If you do not yet have an account, you must register for one.
The course offers an introduction to programmin in Java and is directed at students, which possess little to no experience in programming and have registered for a degree program in which the ability to program is of relevance.
We instruct you in the use of computers and show how simple programs are created and brought to execution. This course emphasizes algorithmic thinking as is necessary for programming and training in practical skills for efficient computer use. In the context of the course, learned skills can be put directly into practice on the university's own computers, however, if possible, please bring your own laptop with.
