Learning Outcomes

After the course, the student will know how to routinely develop small object oriented programs, and the students will be able to develop and implement a larger programming project in a team. The student will become familiar with object oriented programming techniques such as classes, methods, inheritance, polymorphism and serialization.

Student's Workload

135 h, which contains 70 h of scheduled contact studies.
The assessment of student’s own learning 1 h is included in contact lessons.

Prerequisites / Recommended Optional Courses
