This course is an introduction to Java programming for those who are new to the field or need a refresher. The course covers how to apply key programming concepts and use Java programming environment for real world applications. This introductory foundation in Java programming will prepare students to start simpler programming projects for applications.
The course begins with programming concepts and Eclipse IDE. The instructor introduces basic and intermediate Java syntax, and then methodically addresses abstraction, object-oriented paradigm, procedural programming, elementary data structures, and more. Other useful topics include graphics user interface, collections and generics. Students will gain a strong conceptual foundation in these areas while starting to write programs for real applications.
The course consists of lectures and discussion, with some lab work. Students are expected to complete assignments on their own computers. By the end of the course, students should be able to program in the Java language and will be exposed to many useful programming concepts.
At the conclusion of the course, you should be able to
- Understand concepts of programming languages and their usage
- Use intermediate Java syntax
- Use variety of data types suitable to specific programming needs and data abstraction
- Differentiate procedural programming from object oriented programming
- Demonstrate the use of the various control flow features
- Develop programming concepts to write non-trivial Java programs
- Build solid foundation of Java programming and be ready to take up advanced courses
- Introduction to programming, JDK and IDE
- Generative AI Assisted Programming
- Data types, inputs/outputs
- Strings, arrays, collection and generics
- Java programming logic
