Pre-requisite Courses and Assumed Knowledge and Capabilities

Before commencing this course, you should have completed Computing Engineering, or provide evidence of equivalent capabilities.

Course Description

This course introduces object-oriented design and programming using Java programming language. This course covers standard control structures, string, array, file I/O, exception, object-oriented features (inheritance, polymorphism, abstract class and interface), collection framework, and GUI programming. It also introduces techniques for code reuse and debugging. The focus of the course is on developing high quality, working software that solves real problems.

Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development

This course contributes to the following Program Learning Outcomes:

1.1. Comprehensive, theory based understanding of the underpinning natural and physical sciences and the engineering fundamentals applicable to the engineering discipline.
1.2. Conceptual understanding of mathematics, numerical analysis, statistics, and computer and information sciences which underpin the engineering discipline.
2.2. Fluent application of engineering techniques, tools and resources.

On completion of this course, students should be able to:

1. Understand and apply all features of the Java programming language
2. Analyse an engineering problem and develop an algorithm of a solution
3. Perform analysis and design a OO solution for the problem
4. Write a program for the solution using an Integrated Development Environment (IDE)
5. Debug and test a program

Overview of Learning Activities

Learning activities will take the form of:
