Course Description

This hands-on Java introductory course will teach students object-oriented programming skills using the Java language. Students are introduced to the the fundamental concepts of object-oriented programming, like objects and classes, state, conditions, loops, collections, error handling and an overview of inheritance and polymorphism. The course also introduces important algorithmic constructs, string and character manipulation, dynamic memory allocation and standard I/O commands.

This course is intended for students who are new to programming as it would provide a useful introduction to the fundamental concepts of object-oriented software engineering and development, essential and recommended for students with no previous object oriented programming experience who may want to study mobile/ app programming using Android, iOS programming and .NET/C#.
