Course Description:

This course describes another paradigm as a better replacement for structured/procedural programming paradigm (CSE141) for managing large programs to segregate code into reusable chunks called classes. Principles of Abstraction, Encapsulation, Inheritance and Polymorphism are explored as well as developing an understanding of code structuring and design philosophies. It requires a thorough understanding of fundamentals of programming. Topics include class definition, constructors, destructors, access control, method overloading and overriding, inheritance, static and dynamic binding, exception handling, object life cycle and garbage collection, and namespaces. Either Java, C# or C++ is used as a tool for implementation of concepts learnt in this course.
