Description

This module introduces students to the programming utilising an Object Oriented paradigm.  Students begin with simple programs to handle input and output and quickly progress to incorporate classes and objects into code and develop more fully fledged object oriented programs.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;

1.

Demonstrate an understanding of core programming concepts

2.

Solve computation problems using a high level programming language

3.

Develop object-oriented programs

4.

Utilise software constructs for the storage and manipulation of data

5.

Test and debug object-oriented programs

Teaching and Learning Strategies

This module is delivered as a mix of theory and practical content. Students also work on their own assignments during lab time with input from the lecturer.

Module Assessment Strategies

100% CA

Repeat Assessments

Normally students will be required to repeat all failed elements at the discretion of the lecturer and programme examination board.
