MET CS 341 Data Structures with C++

Prerequisites: MET CS 231. Or instructor’s consent.
Delivery: Boston-Charles River Campus
Program: BS CS, MS CS prerequisite
Syllabus: CS341_C1_Fall 14

Description: The object-oriented approach to software design and programming makes the appropriate choice and implementation of data structures crucial for program performance and for its future maintainability. A good understanding of standard data structures and associated algorithms becomes an indispensable component of designer’s knowledge. In this course, we will briefly review the basic C++ facilities for software modularization (classes, their components, templates, and their use). We will use them to implement standard data structures: bags, lists, stacks, queues, trees, graphs. We will also consider algorithms for sorting and searching along with basic topics on performance evaluation and recursion. Upon the completion of this course, you will further develop your skills of modular approach to producing maintainable, documented and adequately tested software of realistic size using C++ as the implementation language. 4 credits.
