Aims and objectives

This unit of study aims to introduce students to structured programming and design.
Unit Learning Outcomes (ULO)
On successful completion of this unit students will be able to:
Explain the principles of the object oriented programming paradigm specifically including abstraction, encapsulation, inheritance and polymorphism, and explain how these principles are used to create object oriented programs
Design, develop, test, and debug programs using object-oriented principles in conjunction with an integrated development environment
Select and use appropriate collection classes, from the languages class library, to manage collections of multiple objects
Construct appropriate diagrams and textual descriptions to communicate the static structure and dynamic behaviour of an object-oriented solution
Apply accepted good practices related to the construction of object-oriented programs
Independently research topics in object-oriented programming and program structure
