## Module content and teaching

###### Principal aims

The primary aim of this module is to extend your C programming skills beyond the level of the second year C Programming (PX270) module and to show how you can use your programming skills to enhance the speed and efficiency with which you can process your data.

###### Principal learning outcomes

At the end of the project you should be able to: write structured programs in C; solve real physics based problems; see how individual routines link together to form a sophisticated programme; appreciate how computers can be used to solve physical problems and the limitations of those computational solutions.

###### Timetabled teaching activities

10 lectures, predominantly in the first 5 weeks
