Course Level Recommendations
ISA offers course level recommendations in an effort to facilitate the determination of course levels by credential evaluators.We advice each institution to have their own credentials evaluator make the final decision regrading course levels.

Hours & Credits
To introduce a number of data structures and algorithms in order to provide a toolkit for solving computational
problems. To present analysis and implementations in Java of introduced algorithms and data structures. To develop
further understanding and skills of programming in Java.
As a result of this module, students should be able to select and use the most appropriate data structures and
algorithms to solve programming problems. They should also develop advanced programming skills by implementing
such data structures and algorithms in Java. They should be able to estimate the computational performance of
their chosen solution.
Concepts of Abstract Data Types (ADTs), Data structures and Algorithms
Object orientated implementation of ADTs
Examples of ADTs and their implementations (list, stack, queue, tree, priority queue)
Introduction to performance analysis of algorithms
Searching algorithms (linear, binary) and their efficiency
Sorting algorithms (selection sort, insertion sort, mergesort, quicksort, heapsort) and their efficiency
Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
Eligibility for courses may be subject to a placement exam and/or pre-requisites.
Some courses may require additional fees.
Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.
Please reference fall and spring course lists as not all courses are taught during both semesters.
Please note that some courses with locals have recommended prerequisite courses. It is the student's responsibility to consult any recommended prerequisites prior to enrolling in their course.
