Prerequisites: Formal prerequisite courses: Programming.
Target skills and knowledge: This course provides an introduction to object oriented programming, including a lab development of a software project.
Examination methods: Written examination: modeling of some problems by object-oriented programs; questions on run-time behaviour of object-oriented programs.
Development of an object-oriented software project.
Possible oral examination to discuss the software project.
Assessment criteria: The written examination covers all the topics of the course. The lab project will be developed in C++ and will use some widely used libraries. The oral examination consists of a discussion of the software project.
Course unit contents: This course is an introduction to object oriented programming based on the C++ programming language. The main topics of the course are as follows. Abstract data types. Objects and classes. Fields and methods of objects. Private and public parts. Constructors. Overloading. Destructors. Friend methods and classes. Container classes. Techniques for memory sharing. Function and class templates. Inheritance and class hierarchies. Virtual methods. Multiple inheritance. Exceptions. Basics of design patterns. Standard and auxiliary libraries: STL library, I/O library, graphic libraries (e.g. Qt).
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: The course consists of lectures and requires that the student develops a lab software project.
