Entry requirements

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

Prerequisites

A basic course in programming is required for this course, especially basic skills in problem solving and construction of small programs. Basic knowledge of computers and familiarity with unix based computer systems.

Intended learning outcomes

This course offer a deeper study in programming, especially imperative and object-oriented programming in the programming language C++, and also knowledge about frequently used data structures and algorithms. Upon completion of this course the student should be able to:

  • Design imperative and object-oriented programs and implement them in the programming language C++.
  • utilize object-oriented program development methodology.
  • Describe and use frequently used data structures and algorithms.

Course content

Lectures, lessons and programming exercises deal with the programming language C++ and its environment, object-oriented analysis and design, programming in C++, data structures and algorithms.

  • Imperative programming in C++ (variables, constants, declarations, expressions, statements, functions, fundamental data types and data structures).
  • Classes (declaration, data members, member functions, nested types, access specification for class members, constructors, destructors, derived classes, polymorphism, dynamic type control and type conversion).
  • Object-oriented program design (object-oriented analysis, design and coding).
  • The C++ standard library (input and output, character and string handling, containers).
  • Data structures: lists, stacks, queues, priority queues, trees, especially search trees, hash tables, heaps, especially binary heap.
  • Algorithms: searching and sorting.

Teaching and working methods

The course is arranged as a series of lectures, lessons and programming
exercises, and a small programming project. Self-study hours must be set aside for literature study, programming exercises, project work and home examination.

Examination

PRA1Project workU, G3 credits
LAB2Laboratory workU, G, VG3.5 credits
UPG3Computer-based excersisesU, G1.5 credits
UPG4Optional reflection paperU, G0 credits

The programming exercises give the student opportunity to practice and test her/his knowledge and skills in procedural and object-oriented programming.
The project work give the student opportunity to practice and test her/his knowledge and skills in object-oriented analysis, design and programming within a project group.

The computer based exercises tests the students knowledge about data structures and algorithms and is also an opportunity for learning.
The final grade (U,3,4,5) for this course is based on the laboratory work ("pass" or "pass with distinction") in combination with the reflection paper ("pass" only). The laboratory work form the base with "pass" translated to grade 3 and "pass with distinction" to grade 4. The reflection paper may raise the grade one step to either 4 or 5.

Grades

Four-grade scale, LiU, U, 3, 4, 5

Other information


Supplementary courses: This course is well suited for supplemantary courses where good knowledge in procedural and object-oriented programming, especially in C++, is required. Examples of such courses are courses covering compilers and interpreters, databases, concurrent programming, real-time programming, operating systems, design patterns, software engineering projects, and programming of parallel computers.

Regulations (apply to LiU in its entirety)

The university is a government agency whose operations are regulated by legislation and ordinances, which include the Higher Education Act and the Higher Education Ordinance. In addition to legislation and ordinances, operations are subject to several policy documents. The Linköping University rule book collects currently valid decisions of a regulatory nature taken by the university board, the vice-chancellor and faculty/department boards.

LiU’s rule book for education at first-cycle and second-cycle levels is available at http://styrdokument.liu.se/Regelsamling/Innehall/Utbildning_pa_grund-_och_avancerad_niva.
