|Delivery Type||Delivery length / details|
|Assessment Type||Assessment length / details||Proportion|
|Semester Assessment||Programming projects (50 hours): 3 practical assignments involving analysis, design and a Java implementation of a solution to a problem. 20% each.||60%|
|Semester Assessment||Case study analysis. Essay discussing a different solution to a practical problem assigned above. (2000 words)||40%|

On successful completion of this module students should be able to:
1. Demonstrate an advanced understanding of Object Oriented analysis, design and implementation techniques
2. Evaluate problem spaces in order to appropriately apply Object-Oriented design patterns
3 Analyse Object-Oriented software solutions in a range of application areas and be able to critically evaluate their effectiveness.
This module is designed for students entering MSc (Software Engineering) , to improve familiarity with the object oriented programming paradigm.
This is an approach to Software Engineering that models a system as a group of interacting objects. Each object represents some entity of interest in the system being modeled, and is characterized by its class, its state (data elements), and its behavior.
This module covers Object-oriented analysis, software design and programming languages and contrasts this with other paradigms.
2. Object-Oriented Data modeling. UML notations. Case studies. (4 lectures)
3. Object Oriented languages (using Java as a specific example). Basic constructs. Case studies of working systems. Robustness and reliability (30 lectures)
4. Design patterns. History. Reuse. Software design patterns and frameworks. Case studies (8 lectures)
