Unit description

This units builds on the object-oriented programming features learned in pre-requisite units by looking at advanced object-oriented concepts and their application in a modern API.  By learning a modern API students will learn how to apply the concepts as well as understanding their technical makeup.

Unit content

  1. Advanced class design
  2. Generics and lambdas
  3. Advanced collections
  4. Advanced exception handling
  5. Input and output
  6. Concurrency

Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
1explain, compare, and apply advanced class design concepts
2apply object-oriented programming principles to solve intermediate problems
3distinguish between and use advanced collection classes
4apply various inbuilt mechanisms within the programming languages to handle concurrency and various forms of input and output
