  • Overview

    Course Content:

    This module extends students? learning of the formal aspects of programming, including
    a comprehensive treatment of the object-oriented paradigm, selection and use of data
    structures, and algorithms for searching and sorting. It also enables students to become
    aquainted with the important tools available for programmers, such as development
    environments, revision control systems and code profiling and optimization techniques.

    Topics covered may include:
    ? Multi-paradigm programming
    ? Software quality factors
    ? Procedural programming
    ? Abstract data types, classes and objects
    ? Inheritance and multiple inheritance
    ? Association and aggregation
    ? Polymorphism; Method overloading, method overriding, operator overloading
    ? Object oriented programming using languages such as Java and C++
    ? Component and service oriented programming and environments
    ? Container classes
    ? Fundamental computing algorithms: recursion, sorting, searching
    ? GUI Components: Swing vs AWT and GUI Class Hierarchy.
    ? Event driven programming and event handling.
    ? Standard development tools and visual programming environments, debugging
    and profiling.
    ? Execution environments, applets, servlets, webservices.
    ? Professional, legal and ethical issues such as copyright and licensing of source
    and executable code, accessibility compliance, professional accreditation of
    programmers.
