C PROGRAMMING

Introduction to hardware and software tools. CPU, memory, disks and files. Program development flow. Introduction to C programming: lexical elements, operators, fundamental data types, flow of controls, functions, recursions, arrays, pointers, strings, bit-wise operators, structures, unions, file manipulation. Students learn structured programming paradigm.

JAVA PROGRAMMING

C++ PROGRAMMING: OBJECT ORIENTED PROGRAMMING

Non-object oriented features of C++. Constructors and Destructors. Type Coversions. Friends. Overloading functions and operators. References. Polymorphisms. I/O streams. Multiple Inheritances. Templates. Memory Management. Students practice the object oriented paradigm.

OBJECT ORIENTED ANALYSIS AND DESIGN

Object oriented analysis. Object oriented software design in C++/Java. Objects. Classes. Inheritance. Polymorphism. Managing compkexity with Abstraction. Liskov principle. Object modeling. Case studies of object oriented design. Memory management. Exception handling. Some design patterns. Students apply object oriented analysis, design, programming techniques to complete a software project.
