Postgraduate Course: Object Oriented Software Engineering Principles (PGGE11042)
|School||School of Geosciences
||College||College of Science and Engineering
|Credit level (Normal year taken)||SCQF Level 11 (Postgraduate)
||Availability||Available to all students
|Summary||The course aims to provide a basic introduction to software object oriented engineering principles using Java. The course introduces a basic set of programming fundamentals such as input/output techniques, selection statements, iterative loops, recursion and basic data structures. It teaches formal class design techniques to address programming tasks and emphasises error elimination and testing strategies in code development. Practical work is central to learning on the course both in supervised sessions and during the participants own time.
