CTP 115H - Introductory Object-Oriented Program Analysis and Design - Honors

4 credit hours - Four hours of lecture and directed laboratory weekly; one term.
This is an honors course.

Learn analysis and design problem-solving techniques to prepare for programming in any language. Learn about object-oriented design, development and related security techniques. Analyze specifications, use design tools such as pseudocode and Unified Modeling language (UML) diagrams to develop classes and objects, consider examples of common program designs, and implement object-oriented designs in a high-level language. Lab fee $25.

Prerequisite(s): Eligibility for Honors courses.

Crosslisted: Also offered as CTP 115 . Credit is not given for both CTP 115  and CTP 115H.

Note: It is highly recommended that students who do not have a working knowledge of computers complete CTA 103  before enrolling in CTP 115H. Students with UML and Object Oriented Programming experience should contact the Computer Science department chair before selecting this course.
