This course aims to introduce students to the principles of object-oriented design and to fundamental techniques in object-oriented programming. It is typically taken in the second year of study, after COMP2521, to ensure an appropriate background in data structures. The knowledge gained in COMP2511 is useful in a wide range of later-year CS courses.
The goal of the course is to expose students to:
the fundamental principles of object-oriented design
object-oriented programming and object-oriented design in Java
the application of sound programming and design skills
problem solving and modeling of real world problems from science, engineering, and economics using the object-oriented paradigm
Topics: Objects. Object-oriented design. Design patterns. Design by contract. Object-oriented programming in Java. Practical work: labs, design project, implementation project.
