CP2410 - Algorithms and Data Structures

Credit points: 03
Year: 2019
Student Contribution Band: Band 2
Administered by: College of Science and Engineering

Efficient data structure is of importance in modern IT systems enabling the effective search and sorting in complex databases. Through the use of algorithms, students determine the most efficient processes to design data structures and systems. In this subject students will examine the issues involved in data structures and algorithms, efficient and effective data management and handling, algorithm design and analysis, implementation and indexing and retrieval.

Learning Outcomes

  • evaluate the efficiency and effectiveness of data structures and algorithms;
  • demonstrate reasoning about efficiency of algorithms;
  • assess and apply suitable data structures and algorithms to IT systems and applications;
  • design and implement data structures and algorithms.
