Practical Database Programming With Visual Basi...
The most up-to-date Visual Basic.NET programming textbook--covering both fundamentals and advanced-level programming techniques--complete with examples and solutionsVisual Basic.NET (VB.NET) is an object-oriented computer programming language that can be viewed as an evolution of the classic Visual Basic (VB), which is implemented on the .NET Framework. Microsoft currently supplies two major implementations of Visual Basic: Microsoft Visual Studio (which is commercial software) and Microsoft Visual Studio Express (which is free of charge).Forgoing the large amounts of programming codes found in most database programming books, Practical Database Programming with Visual Basic.NET shows students and professionals both how to develop professional and practical database programs in a Visual Basic.NET environment by using Visual Studio.NET Data Tools and Wizards related to ADO.NET 4.0, and how to apply codes that are auto-generated by solely using Wizards. The fully updated Second EditionCovers both fundamentals and advanced database programming techniquesIntroduces three popular database systems with practical examples including MS Access, SQL Server 2008, and OracleFeatures more than fifty sample projects with detailed illustrations and explanations to help students understand key techniques and programming technologiesIncludes downloadable programming codes and exercise questionsThis book provides undergraduate and graduate students as well as database programmers and software engineers with the necessary tools to handle the database programming issues in the Visual Studio.NET environment.

The course introduces information technology used in day-to-day business operations. It covers business applications software for office management, communication, project management, relational databases, eCommerce, web development, data transmission and networks, etc. The course also covers such basic information systems concepts as querying simple databases, data analysis and database design. Laboratory instruction is used to complement the course with hands-on experience with a set of above applications. The course is designed for students who will work as end-users, user-managers, leaders, or information systems professionals.
The course introduces multimedia systems from a theoretical and practical perspective. Topics covered include: computer manipulation of images, music, animation, and video, including theoretical aspects of lighting, color, elementary acoustics principles, motion, perspective, graphical and sound file formats, and network transmission. Various software packages will be introduced: for raster and vector graphics; for 2-D- and 3-D-modeling and animation; for sound recording and editing. Using these software packages and applying the principles learned in the course, students will practice creating, processing, and modifying graphics and sound. Students will gain practical hands-on experience through the course work and understand the operating principles of multimedia systems. No programming background is assumed.
Advanced visual Basic programming techniques with graphical user interface and Active X controls. Topics include: multiple forms and other GUI elements, database concepts and interacting with databases, server side web programming, dynamic and static data types, arrays, files, lists, stacks and queues, concept of classes and related notions, designing Windows API calls and Windows registry functions and advanced event-driven business applications. The course provides a computer laboratory component to ensure practice with the above concepts.
An advanced course in server-side web programming. Topics include: cookies, file and database access, portals and web applications; server side scripting. Knowledge of HTML, and of C++, Java, or Visual Basic are required.
Students will study the history of robots, understand the differences in types of robots, explore artificial intelligence through readings and lab work with the Raspberry Pi microcomputer and python programming language, work with sensors, where necessary work with servos and motors, demonstrate understanding of electrical components involved in physical computing, design and attempt construction of programmable and autonomous robots using the Raspberry Pi as a foundation. Working in teams, the students will demonstrate their successes and describe and demonstrate their efforts in a final project.

The course exposes students to a wide range of state-of-the-art research and techniques in the field of computational biology. This is a modern discipline dealing with the discovery and implementation of algorithms facilitating the understanding of biological processes. Various statistical, heuristic, and machine learning methods are used for this purpose, as well as graphical tools to visualize the objects. The course is intended to present some biological problems related to the human genome and the computational methods to resolve them. It will cover an introduction to computational biology, the use of computational methods to search for, classify, analyze, and model protein sequences, i.e. to convert the masses of information from biochemical experiments into useful information.
