#Unit Learning Outcome Description
ULO1Explain the principles of the object oriented programming paradigm specifically including abstraction, encapsulation, inheritance and polymorphism (K2,K6,A2)
ULO2Use an object oriented programming language, and associated class libraries, to develop object oriented programs (K1,K3,S1)
ULO3Design, develop, test, and debug programs using object-oriented principles in conjuncture with an integrated development environment (K2,K6,S1,S2,S3)
ULO4Construct appropriate diagrams and textual descriptions to communicate the static structure and dynamic behaviour of an object-oriented solution (K6,A2)
ULO5Describe and explain the factors that contribute to a good object oriented solution, reflecting on your own experiences and drawing upon accepted good practices (K6,A2)
