Warren T. Jones, Ph.D., PE
Object-oriented (OO) design and programming has become one of the major forces in computing today. The programming expertise of many practicing engineers is based in procedure-oriented FORTRAN and C languages. Transitioning to today’s OO paradigm is not simply “learning another language”, as in moving from FORTRAN to C, for example. It requires learning a new way of thinking. This course is designed to be a first step for engineers toward this new way of thinking. The emphasis is on OO thinking and not a particular programming language. OO methodology is well-suited for dealing with the problems of software complexity and scales up well to large-scale systems. Although small scale engineering applications may not always be seen as benefiting from OO directly, the new OO languages such as Java may be attractive for other reasons such as network applications and platform independence.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
