CIS 3530: Data Structures
The course covers the collection of classic algorithmic techniques that are useful for solving problems. These algorithms include sorting algorithms (e.g., selection sort, insertion sort, quicksort), recursive backtracking search, tree algorithms (traversals, binary search algorithms), and graph algorithms (traversals, spanning trees forests, shortest paths, etc.). It covers exhaustive approaches, divide and conquer, greedy algorithms, backtracking, branch and bound, and iterative improvement, algorithm analysis, asymptotic notation, and recursion. Data structures covered include vectors, stacks, queues, trees, graphs, priority queues, hashtables, and heaps.

EECE 2560: Fundamentals of Engineering Algorithms
Covers the design and implementation of algorithms to solve engineering problems using a high-level programming language. Reviews elementary data structures, such as arrays, stacks, queues, and lists, and introduces more advanced structures, such as trees and graphs, and the use of recursion. Covers both the algorithms to manipulate these data structures as well as their use in problem-solving. Emphasizes the importance of software engineering principles. Introduces algorithm complexity analysis and its application to developing efficient algorithms
