Programme Overview

Learn how to write correct and efficient data structures manipulation using the existing standard template library (STL) of C++. Get introduced to the power of STL and make your code more solid, reusable, and robust.

In this Computer Science course, you will learn about the implementation of all major abstract data structures using the object-oriented programming paradigm of C++ and map abstract data types to the Standard Template Library of C++.
