The course deals with how you create structured object-oriented programmes using the programming language Java. To achieve this, the course deals with concepts such as variable, method, selection and iteration. The course also gives an introduction to object orientation, where classes, objects, inheritance and composition are centrally. Other parts that are dealt with are documentation, error handling, troubleshooting and test. The theoretical knowledge is applied continuously in exercises and laboratory sessions.
Component 1:Introduction, 2.5 credits The component introduces object orientation and programming concepts, theoretically and practically.
Part 2:Proficiency exercise in programming, 2.5 credits The component let the students exercise and deepen their programming skills.
Part 3:Application, 2.5 credits The component let the students apply their knowledge and skills, with focus on creating structured programmes that are simple to extend.
The course is given in the form of lectures and practical assignments.
The components are examined through written assignments and written exam.
The course is given on Campus Gotland and as a distance course.
