Course Objectives:

On completion of the course, the student should be able to

  • appreciate the concept of algorithm analysis and able to perform analysis of algorithms.
  • Understand simple datastructures such as stacks, queues, linked lists and trees and able to use them in practical scenarios
  • Understand programming paradigms such as divide and conquer, dyanamic programming.
  • Learn elementary graph algorithms.
 Course Outcome
  •  The students are expected to use elementary data structures and algorithms in real-life scenarios
  •  Motivate students to participate in community/open-source projects
