Course Title:

Object Oriented Programming

urse Description:

This course builds on the skills obtained in the

course in an
object oriented programming environment. Object creation, object
oriented method calls,
class constructors, method overloading, method overriding, data structures, file
put/output, and other techniques are used to develop application programs with the Java
programming language.

Prerequisites: CIT232, Java Programming



Credit Hours:

Lecture: 3.0

Lab: 0

Expanded Description/Course Focus:

: Important material from the text and outside sources will be covered in class.
Students should plan to take careful notes as not all material can be found in the texts or
readings. Discussion is encouraged as is student
procured, outside material relevan
t to
topics being covered.

: Much of the class time will be used to demonstrate the practical use of
the software for this course. Students are encouraged to carefully observe the
demonstrations and also to go through the tutorial material

in the textbook.

: Problems, cases, and/or readings will be periodically assigned to help
support and supplement material found in the text. Although some time in class will
normally be available for working on assignments, the student will
be expected to spend
a significant amount of time outside of class to complete required assignments.
