  • Overview

    This module will equip students with a good working knowledge of object-oriented programming in both the C++ and Java programming languages. The module builds on the C programming language skills from first year. By using two different languages students will achieve a good theoretical grounding in general object-oriented programming languages. Students apply their skills through challenging practical assignments.

    Learning Outcomes
    1. analyse real-world software systems challenges and develop structured solutions, involving the design of object-oriented classes and class hierarchies
    2. implement such solutions in the C++ and Java programming languages with attention to future design needs
    3. explain the differences and advantages/disadvantages of both the C++ and Java programming languages
    4. use the Java API documentation to develop basic applications using functionality that was not formally taught
    5. implement Java event-driven windowing user-interfaces using the standard component sets

Course Disclaimer

Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.

Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.

ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits are converted to semester credits/quarter units differently among U.S. universities. Students should confirm the conversion scale used at their home university when determining credit transfer.

Please note that some courses with locals have recommended prerequisite courses. It is the student's responsibility to consult any recommended prerequisites prior to enrolling in their course.
