Short Description
The student is taught how to design, code and test programs of medium complexity by applying the object-oriented method.
Learning Objectives

Graduates of the module are able to understand and master the basic concepts in object orientation. They are capable of implementing applications in a modern object oriented programming language according to the specifications and to make use of a development environment.

Smaller project tasks can be designed, developed and realized as executable applications independently.

They handle development tasks independently and assist other students during the development process. Students are able to reflect on their learning process.

  • Data types, data structures, abstract data types, generic types
  • Loops, recursion, functions, methods

  • Classes, class design: static classes (modules)
  • Design by contract: pre and post conditions
  • Information hiding, encapsulation
  • Objectbased programming
  • Test: function test, test case
