NUS computing course
 
Hi, I will start my studies in NUS in a few months time, I really want to know what programming language does NUS computing course is teaching, so that I can prepare myself while I have the time now.

Hope the seniors in NUS computing can provide me with some information about this course thank you :)

if (Exempted_CS1010_CS1020_CS2010) {

printf("Teach no new languages");
printf("Self-learn if required");

} else {

printf("Teach C, Java");

}

switch (Major) {

case CS: printf("Depends on focus areas"); break;

case IS: printf("Java, Java EE"); break;

case EC: printf("Basic programming skills will suffice"): break;

case CM: printf("IDK"); break;

default: printf("Computing sucks."); break;

}

More like Prof-pick-a-language-he-likes-and-you-learn-by-yourself-when-taking-the-module to me.

Honestly, language is not important, just learn any language, it's the computational thinking that is important. I would recommend C/C++ for a more solid foundation in computational thinking, java abstracted too much lower level work from the programmer and is not a good learning language.

erm just wanna find out other than the 8mc proj, any other mods under new prog structure that requires hardcore prog? Anything abt IT and CRM, ERP or SCM or other related mod is more towards theory or proj? Thanks.
