More information may be available for enrolled students on the course website at http://cs.anu.edu.au/courses/COMP1140

This course is a variation on Structured Programming (COMP1110). It  covers the same topics in more depth, allowing students to deepen their understanding and experience. Students will use, apply, and deploy structured programming techniques in a diverse range of application domains.

 

Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of this course, in addition to the learning outcomes of COMP1110, the student will be able to:

  1. Explain the relationship between object­-oriented inheritance (code­-sharing and overriding) and subtyping (the idea of a subtype being usable in a context that expects the supertype).

  2. Use object­-oriented encapsulation mechanisms such as interfaces and private members, and define and use iterators and other operations over aggregate values that take functions as arguments. 

  3. Define and use program pieces (such as functions, classes, methods) that use generic types, including for collections. 

  4. Explain how programming language implementations typically organize memory into global data, text, heap, and stack sections and how features such as recursion and memory management map to this memory model.

  5. Discuss the benefits and limitations of garbage collection, including the notion of reachability.

Indicative Assessment

Individual Assignment (5%), Group Assignment (25%), 2 Lab Tests (20%), Final Exam (50%)

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.

Workload

35 hrs lectures + 8 x 2hrs of labs/tutorial
