Subject Description
Object and Generic Programming C++ develops a thorough understanding of the object-oriented approach and introduces such object concepts as encapsulation, inheritance, polymorphism and runtime binding. This is complemented by an introduction to object-oriented design, with UML representations at the program level. Templates are introduced as a method of achieving generalisation. Container classes and the Standard Template Library are presented as examples of generic programming.

Subject Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this subject, students will be able to:
1. Design and implement objects providing encapsulation, inheritance and polymorphism;
2. Devise solutions to problems through the use of generic programming;
3. Interpret and develop basic UML diagrams; and
4. Design object-oriented solutions to problems, including identifying appropriate objects and object relationships.
