Overview

Course Description
This is a second course in computing science and programming, presented using an object-oriented perspective and intensive hands-on experience. Students will learn how to apply fundamental object-oriented concepts using a high-level programming language (such as C++) to efficiently program applications that have an intermediate level of difficulty. Topics include classes, encapsulation, data hiding, move semantics, inheritance, aggregation, polymorphism, virtual functions, object-oriented exception handling, templates, and event-driven programming.
Course Content
  • Review of pointers and dynamic memory allocation
  • Classes as abstract data types
  • Static and non-static class members
  • Encapsulation, data hiding, and accessor/mutator member functions
  • Constructors, destructors, and copy constructors
  • Separation of class specification from its implementation
  • Operator overloading and object type conversion
  • Rvalues, Rvalue references, and move semantics
  • Inheritance, class hierarchies, and protected members
  • Aggregation
  • Polymorphism and virtual functions
  • Abstract base classes and pure virtual functions
  • Object-oriented exception handling
    • C++ standard exceptions
    • Programmer-defined exception classes
  • Function and class templates
    • Parameter and non-parameter generic types
    • Specialized class templates
  • STL arrays and vectors
  • Function pointers, function objects, and lambda expressions
  • Event-driven programming and GUI applications
  • Basics of embedded systems programming and bit-wise operators
Learning Activities

Lectures, labs, and self-directed learning (programming assignments)

Means of Assessment

Assessment will be in accordance with the Douglas College Evaluation Policy. The instructor will present a written course outline with specific evaluation criteria at the beginning of the semester. Evaluation will be based on the following.

Labs

10% - 20%
Assignments 10% - 20%
Quizzes 0% - 10%
Term Test(s) 25% - 35%
Final Exam 30% - 40%
Total 100%

**In order to pass the course, in addition to receiving an overall course grade of 50%, students must achieve a grade of at least 50% on the combined weighted examination components (including quizzes, term tests, and final exam).

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to:

  • Compare and contrast procedural and object-oriented programming paradigms;
  • Describe encapsulation, abstraction, and information hiding;
  • Apply inheritance, polymorphism, virtual functions, templates, and other object-oriented-related concepts to write effective programs;
  • Implement class constructors, destructors, copy constructors, accessors, mutators, overloaded operators, and move semantics;
  • Utilize Standard Template Library (STL) arrays and vectors;
  • Compare Command Line Interface (CLI) and Graphical User Interface (GUI) applications, and implement simple GUI applications;
  • Apply object-oriented exception handling concepts using C++ standard exceptions and programmer-defined exception classes;
  • Employ function pointers, function objects, and lambda expressions;
  • Identify the fundamental requirements of embedded systems programming.
