Course Details

This second level hands-on intensive course continues on from and requires the introductory object-oriented programming experience covered in COMP 1409 or COMP 1516. 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. COMP 1451 is required in the Applied Software Development, ASD Associate Certificate and the Computer Systems Certificate, CSC. Successful participants will be prepared to move on to higher level programming courses. PLEASE NOTE: COMP 1451 is replaced by COMP 2501- Programming Fundamentals Part 2 and is required prior COMP 2601- Programming Fundamentals Part 3 (Objects) beginning January 2021.
