Basic object oriented programming course, preferably using C++

Intended learning outcomes

The student will work to gain knowledge and skills in problem solving using object oriented programming in C++.

After a completed course, the student should be able to:

• formulate and create solutions to programming problems using an object oriented approach

• solve data processing problems using selected components from the standard template library

• create simple class and function templates

Course content

• Abstraction and object oriented methods (object oriented analysis and design)

• The following concepts; inheritance, encapsulation, association, aggregation, composition, polymorphism

• Create simple class diagrams using UML

• Function and class templates

• The Standard Template Library (STL) including iterators, containers, algorithms and adaptors

• Lambda expressions and function objects

Teaching and working methods

New content is presented during lectures and discussed in smaller lesson groups. The student then practices during labs and in a project.
