This course is an introductory course in object oriented programming. The fundamental concepts of object oriented programming will be studied using the C++ programming language. The purpose of this course is to explore and understand fundamental concepts such as Encapsulation, Polymorphism, and Inheritance. It is not meant to be a comprehensive course on the features of the C++ programming language.
The prerequisite for this course is IS 6800 - Management Information Systems. It is assumed that students will be familiar with basic programming concepts and programming logic. No prior knowledge of the C programming language is required. Grades will be assigned based on performance on examinations and programming assignments.
