The courses Informatica I & II make an Industrial Engeneer a professional programmer knowing about the basic principles of modern programming languages and abstract data typing. He acquires insight in the functioning of a computer. He is able to apply these skills in other languages used by software applications and in other circumstances like PLC-driven machines. Moreover he developes his analytical skills, knows how to solve problems and formulates correct solutions.
Informatica II and Gegevensverwerking are based on this course.

In one part of the course, some fundamentals of hardware and software are being taught.
The other part introduces structured programming in C++ (variables, arrays, arithmetic and logical condition, loop, selection).
