Requisites for this module
BSC YHG1 Digital and Technology Solutions (Software Engineer)
Introduction to Object-Oriented Programming
Primitive and reference types (Classes, Objects and Arrays)
Inheritance and Polymorphism
Flow of Control (iteration, try-catch blocks, recursion)
Dealing with Collections of Objects (Lists and Maps)
The aim of this module is to provide an introduction to the fundamentals of object-oriented programming using Java.
After successfully completing this module, students will be able to:
1. analyse, write and explain Java programs that utilise primitive and reference types and make use of a range of control structures including iteration, recursion and exception handling.
2. analyse, write and explain programs that define classes and use objects of those classes.
3. analyse, write and explain programs that utilise inheritance and polymorphism.
4. analyse, write and explain programs that use parts of a platform API to perform file-based I/O, event handling and display of simple graphical components.
5. demonstrate an understanding of the programming constructs and techniques introduced in this module.

be necessary to make changes, for example to programmes, modules, facilities or fees. Examples of such reasons might include a change of law or regulatory requirements,
industrial action, lack of demand, departure of key personnel, change in government policy, or withdrawal/reduction of funding. Changes to modules may for example consist
of variations to the content and method of delivery or assessment of modules and other services, to discontinue modules and other services and to merge or combine modules.
The University will endeavour to keep such changes to a minimum, and will also keep students informed appropriately by updating our programme specifications and module directory.
