COMP 8042 - Advanced Algorithms and Data Structures Design and Analysis

Computer Systems Part-time Studies Course

School of Computing and Academic Studies

Course Details

The objective of this course is to apply concepts and problem-solving techniques that are used in the design and analysis of efficient algorithms. This course will provide students with exposure and practice to more advanced data structures and algorithmic strategies used in software development. Students will identify real world problems and apply a heuristic approach to solve them. After reviewing basic data structures and algorithms, students will apply advanced analysis techniques and algorithms. Particular emphasis will be placed on efficiency and optimization.​


MATH 7908

Gravitying Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Design and analyze data structures (including advanced tree data structures, dictionaries, hash tables, heaps, and priority queues)
  • Apply a heuristic approach to problem solving.
  • Apply the most appropriate and optimal solution for problem solving using fundamental algorithms (including greedy, divide-and-conquer, and dynamic programming) and advanced algorithms.
  • Apply mapping of real-world problems to algorithmic solutions (including graph problems).
  • Apply advanced techniques to algorithms (including probabilistic and Big O analysis).
  • Design finite state machines for practical problems.
