Module summaryProgramming projects form a vital assessment technique throughout the Computer Science curriculum as well as being a fundamental work unit in an industrial setting. This module provides an opportunity for students to develop experience of professional programming, including tools and technologies. Tools and techniques such as, version control, testing and secure and defensive programming are amongst the skills that professional programmers must have and are developed, in this module, through the completion of a set of small projects where students are expected to produce professional quality solutions to real world problems.This module is project based and is delivered in conjunction with industry experts.
ObjectivesThis module allows students the opportunity to develop a professional approach towards programming contributing to their employability and their role as Computer Science practitioners.
On successful completion of this module a student will have demonstrated the ability to:
- apply professional programming practices to programming projects.
- explain the importance of applying professional programming practices to programming projects.
- design, implement, debug and test a modular programming solution to a real world problem.
This module covers the following 4 topic areas:
- Professional programming standards : coding style, documentation and code review.
- Tools : integrated development environments (IDE), version control, debugging tools and static analysis tools.
- Program design : modular decomposition and functional decomposition.
- Professional programming practices : error handling, input validation, use of standard libraries, defensive and secure programming considerations.
