Learning outcomes:
This course will teach students how to apply the basic principles of object-oriented and generic programming using C++. They will be able to apply design methodologies and development tools to the software development process. Working on small projects, students will be required to research and acquire new knowledge, as well as learning how to coordinate their work with others and how to present their results.

Module content:
- Object-oriented and generic programming:: Overloading operators, inheritance,  
  exception handling, templates
- Design methods:: UML class diagrams, UML sequence diagrams
- Programming techniques and design patterns: e.g. Singleton, Wrapper, Visitor,  
- Software development tools: Integrated development environment, UML Design  
  Tool, version management
- Libraries: e.g. MFC, STL, OpenGL
During the semester, students will undertake a software project in which they will utilize the language constructs, design methods, tools and several of the libraries mentioned above.
