Prel. scheduled hours: 48
Rec. self-study hours: 112

  Area of Education: Technology

Subject area: Computer Engineering

  Advancement level (G1, G2, A): G1

The course should give knowledge of object-oriented program development and programming in an object-oriented language, Java. After this course the student should be able to:
  • write simple programs with input and output of numbers and text, using the command prompt as well as dialog boxes.
  • explain the difference between built-in data types and class types, and the difference between simple variables and reference variables.
  • explain the difference between instance variables and class variables, and the difference between instance methods and class methods.
  • design and implement classes, and use them.
  • use common standard classes from the Java API.
  • write programs for file processing, in particular text files, and handle various exceptions that might occur in this context.
  • explain the concepts inheritance, polymorphism and dynamic binding, and the concepts abstract class and interface.
  • design and implement class hierarchies, and use them.
  • write programs with simple graphical user interfaces.
  • explain the concept event-driven program.
  • for a given problem, develop an object-oriented program consisting of a number of classes, and document this in UML.

Prerequisites: (valid for students admitted to programmes within which the course is offered)
Introductory course in programming.

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshhold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

Lectures, lessons, and laboratory work.
