COMP 1451 - Introduction to Software Development 2

Computer Systems Part-time Studies Course

School of Computing and Academic Studies

Course Details

This hands-on intensive course continues on from and requires the object-oriented programming experience covered in COMP 1409. The language of example is Java, which is used to provide a solid foundation in current programming concepts and methodologies, with a focus on problem solving. Topics include: data abstraction, modularity, object-oriented programming concepts (encapsulation, inheritance, polymorphism), testing and debugging. Students will be prepared to understand more advanced courses in either procedural or object-oriented programming languages.

Prerequisite(s)

COMP 1409 with 70% or better.
