Undergraduate Course: Informatics 1 - Object-Oriented Programming (INFR08014)
|School||School of Informatics
||College||College of Science and Engineering
|Credit level (Normal year taken)||SCQF Level 8 (Year 1 Undergraduate)
||Availability||Available to all students
|Summary||This course presents a conceptual and practical introduction to object oriented programming, exemplified by Java. As well as providing a grounding in the use of Java, the course will cover general principles of programming in imperative and object oriented frameworks. After completing the course successfully, students will be able to develop programs that support experimentation, simulation and exploration in other parts of the Informatics curriculum (e.g. the capacity to implement, test and observe a particular algorithm).
An introduction to the concepts of programming using a object oriented programming language.

On completion of this course, the student will be able to:
- Name, explain and apply the core concepts and constructs used in imperative and object- oriented programming
- Given a detailed design, develop a working program that implements the design
- Develop small programs, or components of larger ones, or modify existing ones, to solve clearly defined programming problems
- Given a clearly described component, develop a test set and test code for a component. Use code review and debugging tools to identify the location of a fault in an erroneous program
- Run and analyse a given program; describe how well it works compared to its specification, or identify ways in which it fails , and apply basic tools to aid in developing programs (e.g. IDE, version control)
