Welcome to the St. David Computer Studies Area

Please find below a flow chart and course descriptions for all the courses in the Computer Studies.


 

Introduction to Computer Science ICS3UI
This course introduces students to computer science. Students will design software independently and as part of a team, using industry-standard programming tools and applying the software development life-cycle model. They will also write and use subprograms within computer programs. Students will develop creative solutions for various types of problems as their understanding of the computing environment grows. They will also explore environmental and ergonomic issues, emerging research in computer science, and global career trends in computer-related fields.
COURSE NOTE: ICS2OI is a recommended pre-requisite for this course. There is a lot of programming in this course.
CREDIT: 1 TYPE: University GRADE: 11
 

Computer Engineering Technology

TEJ3MI
This course examines computer systems and control of external devices. Students will assemble computers and small networks by installing and configuring appropriate hardware and software. Students will develop knowledge and skills in electronics, robotics, programming, and networks, and will build systems that use computer programs and interfaces to control and/or respond to external devices. Students will develop an awareness of related environmental and societal issues, and will learn about college and university programs leading to careers in computer technology.
CREDIT: 1 TYPE: College/University GRADE: 11
 

Computer Science

ICS4UI
This course enables students to further develop knowledge and skills in computer science. Students will use modular design principles to create complex and fully documented programs, according to industry standards. Student teams will manage a large software development project, from planning through to project review. Students will also analyse algorithms for effectiveness. They will investigate ethical issues in computing and further explore environmental issues, emerging technologies, areas of research in computer science, and careers in the field.
CREDIT: 1 TYPE: University GRADE: 12
PREREQUISITE: ICS3UI – Introduction to Computer Science
 

Computer Engineering Technology

TEJ4MI
This course extends students’ understanding of computer systems and computer interfacing with external devices. Students will assemble computer systems by installing and configuring appropriate hardware and software, and will learn more about fundamental concepts of electronics, robotics, programming, and networks. Students will examine related environmental and societal issues, and will explore postsecondary pathways leading to careers in computer technology.
