Imperative Programming


Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

This is an English translation of the module. In case of discrepancy between the translation and the Danish version, the Danish version of the module is valid.

In this course, the student will gain insight into basic concepts such as algorithms, data structures and computer architectures

Computers, regardless of subject area, are one of the most important problem-solving tools today. Therefore, the student must acquire a knowledge of basic computer science concepts  so they will be able to solve problems using imperative programming languages.

Learning objectives


  • Development environment and compilation
  • Imperative principles
  • Data types and variables
  • Control structures
  • Functions and procedures
  • Data structures including arrays
  • Input / Output
  • Composite data structures
  • Simple algorithms (eg sorting and searching)
  • Basic testing of programs


  • write, run and test programs incorporating the above-mentioned basic concepts into the solution
  • apply correct subject terminology


both independently and in collaboration with others, implement an imperative program as a solution to a defined task
