This course will emphasize using objecte oriented analysis and design techniques

to learn the C++ programming language. Students completing the course will learn C++ syntax, how to make use of the C++ standard library, and how to design and implement custom types that extend the standard library.

Course Highlights:

  • Object oriented analysis and design
  • Program structure, functions and variables
  • Classes in-depth
  • Operator overloading
  • Inheritance
  • Exceptions and templates
  • Standard library string and vector
  • Streams
  • The Standard Template Library (STL)
  • Two projects designed to expose the student to real-world programming concerns

Course Learning Outcomes:

  • Understand C++ concepts
  • Understand the benefits of object-oriented programming
  • Ability to read, write and debug C++ code including use of the C++ standard library
  • Obtain a working knowledge of object oriented analysis and design and how it applies in C++

Software: Students must have access to program development tools. Free IDE downloads students commonly use for this program include "Visual Studio Community" for Windows, "Xcode" for macOS, and "Code::Blocks" for Linux, Windows, and macOS.

Course Materials: The instructor will provide students with a pdf copy of his custom course reader to be used for the duration of this course. There is no other textbook required for this course.

Course Typically Offered: Online in Spring, Summer, and Fall quarters.

Prerequisite: CSE-40476 C/C++ Programming II: Dynamic Memory and File I/O or equivalent knowledge and experience. While no knowledge of C++ is required for this course students enrolling in this course should possess a solid understanding of the C programming language. Students who lack this foundational knowledge MUST take the prerequisite prior to enrolling in this course.

Next Step: After completing this course, consider taking CSE-40478 C/C++ Programming IV: Advanced Programming with Objects to continue learning.
