Subject Title
The Object-Oriented Paradigm Using C++

Subject Description

This subject introduces the student to object-oriented programming. The student learns to build reusable objects, encapsulate data and logic within a class, inherit one class from another and implement polymorphism.  This subject uses the C++ programming language exclusively and establishes a foundation for learning system analysis and design and more advanced concepts as implemented in languages such as C++, Java, C# and Objective-C.

Credit Status
1 credit (3 units)
Required for BSD - Bachelor of Technology (Software Development)

Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this subject the student will be able to:

1 - Design classes with dynamically allocated resources to model the components of a programming solution
2 - Design member functions using logic constructs to solve tasks of linear complexity
3 - Relate classes using inheritance hierarchies to minimize the duplication of object code
4 - Design polymorphic objects to amplify the reusability of program code
5 - Use stream objects to interact with users and access persistent data
6 - Trace the execution of object-oriented code to validate its correctness
7 - Code a complete program using polymorphic objects to implement a specified coding plan
8 - Explain the purpose of an object-oriented programming feature to inform a business person
9 - Develop an algorithm using object-oriented concepts to solve a simple programming problem

Essential Employability Skills
Execute mathematical operations accurately.

Apply a systematic approach to solve problems.

Manage the use of time and other resources to complete projects.
