About This Course: This course provides a thorough introduction to C++ programming language to those who would be using them for numerical computing (in applied mathematics, sciences, engineering, economics, and finance) and/or for solving practical real-world problems. It is designed to give students fluency in C++. The course consists of interactive lectures with students doing sample C++ problems during the lab sessions. With our simple and practical training approach, this course will take you through learning C++ programming language. Examples are provided in the areas of engineering, sciences, economics, finance, and more.
Training Cost: ₦ 45,000.00
Background on C++: C is a general-purpose computer programming language developed by Dennis M. Ritchie at the Bell Telephone Laboratories in 1972. Many of its principles and ideas were taken from the earlier language B and B's earlier ancestors BCPL (CPL: Combined Programming Language). It is probably the most widely used computer language. C++, an extension of the C language, is a programming language developed by Bjarne Stroustrup starting in 1979 at Bell Labs.
C is powerful, modular, flexible, portable, has fast program execution time, and allows low-level command and access to information. Most 3D movies are created with applications that are generally written in C and C++. Embedded systems (small microcontrollers/microprocessors running a program – they are, more or less, small computers) for TVs, radios, aircrafts, chemical processing plants, modern cars, among others, are mostly coded in C or C++. In cars alone, embedded systems for the automatic transmission systems, dashboard displays, anti-lock brakes, cruise control, and air-bag are all coded in C/C++.
Success Stories: Companies and Institutions around the World Using C++ include Amazon.com, Apple, AT&T, Bloomberg, CERN, Ericsson, Facebook, Google, IBM, Microsoft, Nokia and Siemens.
Course Time: 9 am to 4 pm
Prerequisites: Basic IT skills. A first year undergraduate-level mathematics or background in engineering, physics, mathematics, economics, finance or another applied science with some mathematical content will be helpful. No previous programming experience is required.
