This module is not approved as a discovery module
Module summaryThis module builds on earlier programming modules and focuses on the object-oriented paradigm, one of the most important programming paradigms in industry. In order to develop software in object-oriented programming languages it is essential to understand the fundamental differences between object-oriented and procedural programming and how the design process differs between the two paradigms. This module introduced the techniques and tools for designing, implementing, testing and debugging object-oriented programs.
ObjectivesThis module provides the fundamental knowledge for developing in an object oriented manner and develops transferable abstract modelling and problem solving techniques.
On successful completion of this module a student will have demonstrated the ability to:
- compare and contrast object oriented programming to other programming paradigms.
- design and implement object oriented programs that demonstrate appropriate use of object oriented design principles.
- select and use appropriate data structures for a given problem.
- select and use appropriate tools for developing object oriented programs.
This module covers the following 4 topic areas:
- Object oriented programming philosophy : reasons for adopting object orientation, comparison with other programming paradigms, inheritance and polymorphism.
- Object oriented programming constructs :- classes, objects, interfaces, abstract classes, class hierarchies and sub-typing.
- Object oriented design principles : encapsulation, information hiding, single responsibility principle and Liskov's Substitution principle
- Data structures in object oriented programming : understand the application of stacks, queues, linked lists and maps and when to use static and dynamic data structures.
