Subject Title
Object-Oriented Software Development Using C++

Subject Description

This subject expands the student's skill-set in object-oriented programming and introduces the student to threaded programming.  The student learns to model relationships between classes using containers, inheritance hierarchies and polymorphism in the C++ programming language and to write C++ programs that execute on multiple threads.

Credit Status
1 credit (3 units)
Required for CPA - Computer Programming and Analysis (Ontario College Advanced Diploma)
Required for CPD - Computer Programmer (Ontario College Diploma)

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

  1. Design collections of model objects using sequential containers and multi-dimensional arrays to solve a systems or business problem
  2. Create function objects and closures to customize a programming solution for a particular application
  3. Model generalization and specialization using inheritance hierarchies to minimize the duplication of code
  4. Model polymorphic behavior using interfaces, virtual functions and templates (generics) to amplify the reusability of code
  5. Implement design components using algorithms of the standard template library to utilize existing technologies
  6. Create program components of quadratic complexity to solve non-linear problems
  7. Design program components using raw pointers and pointer arithmetic to access data in program memory
  8. Design multi-tasked solutions using threading libraries to improve the performance of a program
  9. Design file stream objects to backup text and binary data for future restoration

Essential Employability Skills
Execute mathematical operations accurately.

Apply a systematic approach to solve problems.

Use a variety of thinking skills to anticipate and solve problems.

Locate, select, organize, and document information using appropriate technology and information systems.

Analyze, evaluate, and apply relevant information from a variety of sources.

Interact with others in groups or teams in ways that contribute to effective working relationships and the achievement of goals.

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

Academic Integrity
Seneca upholds a learning community that values academic integrity, honesty, fairness, trust, respect, responsibility and courage. These values enhance Seneca's commitment to deliver high-quality education and teaching excellence, while supporting a positive learning environment. Ensure that you are aware of Seneca's Academic Integrity Policy which can be found at: http://www.senecacollege.ca/about/policies/academic-integrity-policy.html Review section 2 of the policy for details regarding approaches to supporting integrity. Section 2.3 and Appendix B of the policy describe various sanctions that can be applied, if there is suspected academic misconduct (e.g., contract cheating, cheating, falsification, impersonation or plagiarism).

Please visit the Academic Integrity website http://open2.senecac.on.ca/sites/academic-integrity/for-students to understand and learn more about how to prepare and submit work so that it supports academic integrity, and to avoid academic misconduct.

Discrimination/Harassment
All students and employees have the right to study and work in an environment that is free from discrimination and/or harassment. Language or activities that defeat this objective violate the College Policy on Discrimination/Harassment and shall not be tolerated. Information and assistance are available from the Student Conduct Office at student.conduct@senecacollege.ca.

Accommodation for Students with Disabilities
The College will provide reasonable accommodation to students with disabilities in order to promote academic success. If you require accommodation, contact the Counselling and Accessibility Services Office at ext. 22900 to initiate the process for documenting, assessing and implementing your individual accommodation needs.
