|Type||Board Developed Course|
The Preliminary course introduces students to the basic concepts of computer software design and development. It does this by looking at the different ways in which software can be developed, the tools that can be used to assist in this process and by considering the interaction between software and the other components of the computer system.
The HSC course builds on the Preliminary course and involves the development and documentation of software using a variety of data structures and language facilities. Students learn to solve a number of interesting and relevant software problems.
Students interested in the fields of software development and computer science will find this subject of value. In addition to this, it is a great career choice as jobs continue to move more and more into the information age.
Most concepts are learned through practical projects which are shown in the course outline below in red.
