This course presents the principles behind object-oriented programming (OOP) and its computational mechanism. The cource introduces the characteristics and design principles of OOP languages which lead to improved maintenability and reusability.
The course aims to provide students with the ability to write a program by using abstraction and programming technique with hierarchical class definition through programming exercises in Java with typical APIs
By the end of this course, students will be able to:
(1) write object-oriented programs
(2) write maintainable code with inheritance and delegation
(3) write syntactically correct Java programs
(4) use typical APIs of Java
class and object, inheritance, polymorphism, dynamic binding, encapsulation, delegation
|Intercultural skills||Communication skills||✔ Specialist skills||Critical thinking skills||✔ Practical and/or problem-solving skills|
Each week of the course consists of a lecture-style lesson at lecture room and an individual programming exercise at computer center.
