Object-oriented programming is one of the principle paradigms in software development used by organisations worldwide to develop a wide range of software solutions. Sound knowledge of the underlying principles and experience in the practical application of these is essential for any information technology specialist. This intermediate programming course extends students’ procedural programming knowledge and skills into the object-oriented paradigm and builds on previous experience with interpreted languages to introduce compiled languages. In addition to further shaping a solid development methodology, the course prepares students for continued investigation into advanced programming topics.

This course extends the student's basic procedural design and programming knowledge into the object-oriented paradigm. The student will be expected to learn and apply the basic concepts of object-oriented design and programming, i.e., abstraction, inheritance, and polymorphism, in the context of the C++ language. Key software engineering principles such as decomposition and component re-use will also be emphasised.
