Description

This unit covers object-oriented design and programming using C++. It explores in detail the C++ language including classes, inheritance, virtual functions and polymorphism, encapsulation, templates, streams, file-handling, exception handling and the application of the Standard Template Library (STL).

Prerequisite Rule

Students must pass 1 units from CSP1150, CSP4150

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this unit students should be able to:

  1. Describe advantages and disadvantages related to object-oriented design and programming.
  2. Design and implement a class library as an abstraction, using the facilities of the C++ language and environment.
  3. Formulate computer algorithms using the operations, control structures and classes provided in the C++ programming languages.
  4. Implement efficient exception handling mechanisms in user-defined classes.
  5. Stream data between objects and devices, files and memory.
  6. Write, test and debug computer programs written in C++.

Unit Content

  1. Advanced C++ features.
  2. An introduction to object-oriented design.
  3. Classes.
  4. Classification, inheritance, polymorphism and encapsulation as concepts in language design and programming.
  5. Constructors and destructors.
  6. Exception handling mechanisms.
  7. I/O streams and file handling.
  8. Inheritance and derived classes.
  9. Operator overloading and conversions.
  10. The process of programming with objects.

Teaching and Learning Processes

Lectures and workshops.

Disability Standards for Education (Commonwealth 2005)

For the purposes of considering a request for Reasonable Adjustments under the Disability Standards for Education (Commonwealth 2005), inherent requirements for this subject are articulated in the Unit Description, Learning Outcomes and Assessment Requirements of this entry. The University is dedicated to provide support to those with special requirements. Further details on the support for students with disabilities or medical conditions can be found at the Student Equity, Diversity and Disability Service website.

Academic Misconduct

Edith Cowan University has firm rules governing academic misconduct and there are substantial penalties that can be applied to students who are found in breach of these rules. Academic misconduct includes, but is not limited to:

  • plagiarism;
  • unauthorised collaboration;
  • cheating in examinations;
  • theft of other students’ work;

Additionally, any material submitted for assessment purposes must be work that has not been submitted previously, by any person, for any other unit at ECU or elsewhere.

The ECU rules and policies governing all academic activities, including misconduct, can be accessed through the ECU website.
