BCIT is planning for a substantial return to on-campus activity for the fall 2021 term as informed by BC Public Health Officer guidelines. Refer to each course listing for details.

Course Details

This hands-on intermediate level course assumes students have completed COMP 2617 C++ Application Development Part 1 with a minimum of 60%. Students immediately move into more advanced C++11 features. Topics include: operator overloading; template classes; exception handling; the string class and stream processing; the Standard Template Library; file processing; and namespaces. Additional miscellaneous advanced C++ topics will also be covered. Delivery is face-to face for 3 hours each week plus an online and homework component. Typical students will require about 10 hours per week to study the material and work on assignments outside of class. Upon successful completion, participants will be able to write, test and debug C++ programs to industry standards and be able to develop significant software applications. NOTE: COMP 2618 will be offered for the last time in September 2021, the replacement C++ course will not be offered until April 2022.
