ECE 30862 - Object-Oriented Programming in C++ and JavaLecture Hours: 3 Credits: 3
This is an experiential learning course.
Normally Offered: Each Fall
Requisites by Topic:
Advanced C Programming
The C++ and Java programming languages are presented. The language constructs discussed include classes, inheritance, encapsulation, polymorphism, class derivation, abstract classes, interfaces, static class members, object construction and destruction, namespaces, exception handling, function overloading and overriding, function name overload resolution, container classes, template classes, etc.
Was previously offered as ECE 46200.
