About This Course
The basic principles of software engineering will be introduced to facilitate the reuse of the code. This Java course will also address ethical issues and the intellectual property of programs. Practical examples and case studies will be provided so that students can implement simple, but increasingly complex, programs in Java.
Why Take This Course?
The course opens the door to computational thinking, that is, the application of computer techniques to everyday processes.
- Detect and correct common programming errors in Java during the compilation
- Detect and correct common programming errors at runtime, using debugging tools
- Check that the program does what it has to do using unit tests
- Compare the efficiency of two programs in terms of the resources used
- Modelling simple programs in Java with basic software engineering techniques
- Determine if a program has been developed respecting ethical considerations
- Topic 1: Errors
- Topic 2: Reasoning and testing of programs
