Bachelor's Programme in IT and Information Systems
IT and Information Systems, 1-year Programme
Language of instruction
Upon succesful completion of the course, students will:
know an Object-Oriented Programming language, and be able to apply this for small to medium programmes as well as understanding larger programmes in the same language
know and apply common abstractions in Object-Oriented Programming, including advanced object oriented techniques (polymorphism etc.) to be able to learn other programming languages
know and be able to follow good programming practices (eg documentation, testing and code standards)
be able to participate in detailed design (classes and methods) and programming of Object-Oriented Information Systems
This course covers basic object-oriented concepts, (e.g. class, object, and method), as well as more advanced topics (such as sub- and super-class, multiple inheritance, and abstract classes. Imperative programming topics (at least assignment, conditional statements, and loops) are covered. The students will be trained in writing code, as well as using test tools and code standards, and detail design.
This course uses an educational model where students work in the lab with guidance from teacher and assistant teacher. Students learn at their own pace by working individually with textbooks, assignments, and other resources. The course is divided into modules to be taken sequentially. The student must show that the learning objectives for a module have been reached (eg by passing a test or in conversation with the teacher or assistant teacher) in order to continue with the next module. Lectures are used to a small extent. Estimated workload is 270 hours.
Students must, either through a test or in an interview, demonstrate that the learning goals are achieved for each module before proceeding to the next. To be allowed to take the exam, the student must pass a minimum number of modules.
Assessment methods and criteria
Individual oral exam. Graded, A-F.
The person responsible for the course decides, in cooperation with student representative, the form of student evaluation and whether the course is to have a midway or end of course evaluation in accordance with the quality system for education, chapter 4.1.
