Description Teachers


After completion of this course you will be able to handle complex problems in application development. Model the problem in correct data structures and applying efficient algorithm to solve the problem and know how complex an algorithm is in terms of O(N) expression. The student then understands the importance of choosing correct algorithm to solve the problem.
