Unit Summary

Unit type

UG Coursework Unit

Credit points

12

Pre-requisites

PROG1001 - Programming I

Unit aim

Continues with the principles of object-oriented programming using a standard programming language and an intermediate development environment. This unit works with more extensive structures of objects including collections of objects and arrays. Students are given a solid introduction to libraries and interfaces, the Java standard library, helper classes and documentation.  

Unit content

1. Variables, wrappers, and maths

2. Arrays and loops

3. Strings and dates

4. Collections and Lists

5. Advanced class building blocks

6. Exception handling and garbage collection

Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
1 modify and expand short object-oriented programs that use standard control structures
2 design, implement, test, and debug simple programs in an object-oriented programming language
3 demonstrate how to use class mechanisms to support encapsulation and efficient code
4 analyse and determine appropriate data structures and iteration methods to support a solution
