Module description

The module will provide an introduction to the fundamentals of object-oriented programming using Java. Students will analyse, write and explain Java programs using a range of control structures. They will define classes and use objects of those classes. Students will study inheritance and polymorphism and perform file-based I/O, event handling and some simple graphical components.

Module aims

The aim of this module is to provide an introduction to the fundamentals of object-oriented programming using Java.

Module learning outcomes

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.

Disclaimer: The University makes every effort to ensure that this information on its Module Directory is accurate and up-to-date. Exceptionally it can 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.
