  • Good English (passive). This skill is essential since there will be reading task (refer to the prescribed textbook) in each week as part of self study.
  • An understanding of and ability to use basic programming constructs (variable including arrays, assignment operations, arithmetic operations, logical tests, branching flow of control, looping flow of control) in order to run and implement some algorithms.
  • Familiar with Java programming language. This skill is essential since all the code examples in this unit are written in Java.
