Learning outcomes

 This course covers the fundamentals of Object Oriented Programming (OOP) using Java. The main learning objectives for this course are: To build and develop OOP thinking: Learn to think in objects; to familiarize students with the basic features of the language API and knowing how to use them correctly and efficiently; to cover the usage principles of encapsulation, coupling, cohesion, inheritance, polymorphism and method overloading/overriding; to create applications using sound OOP practices and program structuring; to develop analytical programming thinking and reasoning skills. The aforementioned objectives are achieved through course lectures and extensive laboratory exercises.
