EE 2510 - Introduction to Object-Oriented Programming

2 lecture hours 2 lab hours 3 credits
Course Description
This course introduces object-oriented programming to students who have experience in structured programming techniques. Particular emphasis is placed on the design and implementation of computer programs to solve problems encountered in engineering practice. Topics include introduction to object oriented programming concepts, user-defined classes, constructors and destructors, abstraction techniques, overloading, polymorphism, and inheritance. (prereq: EE 1910  or EE 3910B , MA 137  or MA 225 )
Course Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
  • Design computer software to solve engineering problems using object-oriented programming method
  • Create and use classes and objects
  • Apply encapsulation and information hiding in software design
  • Create and apply derived classes (inheritance)
  • Create and apply virtual functions (polymorphism)
  • Implement objects and classes in designing software for engineering applications
