Course Objectives The course teaches how to generate abstractions to represent a class of objects sharing a set of attributes or behavioral traits. In this course, the students are introduced to a method of programming that seeks to mimic the way we form models of the world using UML. By using these abstractions the students get a chance to apply the three main properties of object-oriented languages; namely, encapsulation, inheritance and polymorphism using the C++ language.
Course Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Explain method of programming that seeks to mimic the way we form models of the world using UML.
  • Apply encapsulation, inheritance, polymorphism
  • Use function and operator overloading
  • Employ exception handling
  • Apply function and class templates
  • Employ object oriented approach to program development
Course Content Data types. Expressions and statements. Functions and scope rules. Class definitions. Inheritance. Polymorphism. Name overloading. Templates. Exception handling. Input/Output. Object oriented principles will be introduced using the UML and C++ programming language.
