Course detail

Practical programming in C++

FEKT-BPPCAcad. year: 2018/2019

Basic aim of this course is learning C++ basics like C extension (C basics are learned in BPC2A course).
The C++ extensions are: non object C++ features, Basic object features, standard libraries. There are also learned object programming concepts and tools for C++ programming.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

The student is able:
- design programs with non object language extensions
- design a program using objectoriented programming
- create program with objects (acces rights, member data, methods, operators)
- read simple object oriented programs
- write object oriented C++ programm with inheritance, polymorphism (virtual methods)
- to use streams for input and output,
- to make basic template design.


Attend BPC1 course and pass out BPC2 course or similar.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods

Teaching methods include lectures and computer laboratories. Course is taking advantage of www pages coupled with e-learning (Moodle) system. Students have to write a single project during the course.

Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes

Project - program with classes - up to 40pts.
Tests, written exams - up to 80pts.
The points (up to 100) and requirements for completion of a course are specified by a regulation issued by the lecturer responsible for the course and updated for every year.
