Job Description:

Adjunct Instructors are needed to teach the following courses for Fall 2019 in the Computer Science Department. Day and evening sections are available.

CIT-120 Intro to Computer Science/Object Oriented Programming

This is a first course in Object Oriented Programming (OOP) theory, logic and design. Taught in the College's "hands-on" computer classrooms, this course emphasizes the program design and development process including concepts of variables and flow control, objects, classes, methods, and polymorphism. Students will use an Object Oriented Programming language as they design code, debug and implement several programs covering the topics presented.

CIT-125 Python Programming

This is an introductory course designed for any student interested in learning computer programming concepts and hands on computational thinking, all in the context of the Python programming language. No prior experience in programming is necessary. Students will use their own problem solving abilities to implement programs in Python. This course will show the student how to create basic programming structures including decisions and loops. Further, students will explore unique Python data structures such as tuples and dictionaries. Students will also learn to perform basic debugging techniques. At the end of this course, the student will have learned enough concepts in computer science and programming to be able to write Python programs to solve problems on their own. This course will prepare the student to move on to the Advanced Python Programming course.

CIT-225 Python Programming

This is an advanced course designed for any student interested in learning advanced computer programming concepts in the context of the Python programming language. In this course students will explore classes, object oriented programming, plotting, sampling and statistical thinking, using randomness to solve non-random problems, statistical thinking, graphs, and dynamic programming. Students will complete hands-on individual projects, individual assessments, group projects, and exams to assess student success at achieving the course outcomes.

CIT-237 C++ Programming

In this course, students who already have been exposed to programming and Object Oriented thinking, develop the ability to correctly analyze a variety of problems and generate appropriate algorithmic solutions using the C++ Programming Language. The course emphasizes the principles of top-down structured design and Object Oriented thinking. Topics include but are not limited to branching and looping mechanisms; arrays, functions and function overloading, arguments by reference and by value as well as optional arguments; recursion; pointers, creating libraries and namespaces, structures and classes, constructors and other methods, overloading operators; file I/O; inheritance and polymorphism. Strong analytical skills are recommended for students enrolling in this course.

CIT-239 JAVA Programming

In this course, students who already have been exposed to programming and Object Oriented thinking, develop the ability to correctly analyze a variety of problems and generate appropriate algorithmic solutions using the Java Programming Language. The course emphasizes the principles of top-down structured design and Object Oriented thinking. Topics include but are not limited to branching and looping mechanisms; arrays, functions and function overloading, arguments by reference and by value as well as optional arguments; recursion; creating packages, structures and classes, constructors and other methods, file I/O; inheritance and polymorphism. Strong analytical skills are recommended for students enrolling in this course, plus familiarity and experience working with the Internet and basic HTML tags. The course covers creating both Java Applications and Java Applets including event handling, animation, and audio.

CIT-243 Android Development for JAVA Programmers

This course is for students who are already experienced Java programmers. It discusses not only the intricacies of Android app development, but publishing in the Market place and monetizing the apps through fees, in-app advertising, or in-app billing of selling virtual goods. Topics include but are not limited to: mobile game design principles, tools and terminology, AndEngine framework, Java/Dalvik and Android SDK, rendering images, using sprite sheets, creating animations, sound, creating an effective game interface, resource files, working with maps, notifications, and building customer UI elements. APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) and SDK (Software Development Kits) for phones and tablets will be used.

CIT-285 Advanced JAVA Programming

This course thoroughly examines many of the sophisticated features of the Java programming language, including interfaces, advanced graphics, some data structures, file I/O techniques, multithreading, advanced JDBC Servlets, and Java Server Pages. Students demonstrate their mastery of the material through a series of graded projects and examinations that challenge at an extremely high level. The course not only instructs in the preparation of applications and applets that focus on business-related topics, but also teaches JAVA in an internet-based, integrative environment that utilizes cross-platform tools.
