Course Syllabus

Course Name: Data Structures

Course Overview: The course focuses on the concepts of Data Structures which are an essential part of computer programming. The course covers the basics of arrays, pointers, functions, structures, stacks, queues, linked lists, trees, graphs, hashing, searching, and sorting.

Course Objectives: • To provide an understanding of the basics of Data Structures. • To introduce the different types of Data Structures and their operations. • To understand the importance of Data Structures in computer programming. • To provide practical skills in implementing Data Structures in programming.

Teaching Methodology: The course will be conducted through a combination of lectures, practical exercises, and assignments. The lectures will cover the theoretical concepts of Data Structures, and the practical exercises will provide hands-on experience in implementing them. The assignments will be given to test the knowledge of the students.

Importance for Learner in Career Growth and Self-Employment: The knowledge of Data Structures is essential for any computer programmer. It enables the programmer to design efficient algorithms, optimize code, and solve complex problems. The course will be beneficial for learners who want to enhance their programming skills and pursue a career in software development or self-employment.
