INST2002: Programming 2

This module is a direct continuation of INST1002 Programming 1. Programming 1 introduced some of the basic concepts of imperative and object-oriented computer programming, and developed programming skills and related problem-solving skills using a subset of the Java programming language. The Programming 2 module expands this subset and uses it to introduce the more complex concepts required to perform more detailed (and more interesting!) programming tasks using the Java language.

Learning outcomes: On successful completion of this module students will be able to design, write, debug and test medium size (i.e. 3 to 4 page) Java programs, primarily for the creation and implementation of Graphical User Interface (GUI) and File I/O routines, containing a combination of some or all the following features:

  • basic graphics with Java
  • inheritance and interfaces
  • events, listeners and GUIs
  • small scale program design
  • standard searching and sorting algorithms
  • use of recursion and abstract data structures

Assessment: Assessment is by coursework (a practical programming exercise or series of exercises) and an unseen examination
Compulsory for:
BSc Information Management for Business
Optional for:
 Arts and Sciences BASc (Sciences and Engineering Pathway)

Prerequisites: INST1002: Programming 1
Taught by: Dr Luke Dickens
