CS 122 - Computer Programming 2 - Java Objects

Credits: 5
Computer programming for students with some previous programming experience. Emphasizes program design, style, and decomposition. Topics covered include object oriented programming, introduction to memory models, inheritance, polymorphic behavior and the use of data structure interfaces. All within the Java programming language system.

Enrollment Requirement: CS 121  with grade of 1.0 or higher; or Instructor verification of prior programming experience.

Course Fee: $20.00

Course Outcomes:
Students who successfully complete this class will be able to:

  1. Explain the philosophy of object-oriented design and the concepts of encapsulation, abstraction, inheritance, and polymorphism. 
  2. Employ advanced inheritance concepts in programming to link common data types together and simplify their construction. 
  3. Create and use abstract classes in programming applications to solve computer science problems. 
  4. Solve computer science problems using java collection classes, interfaces and methods.
  5. Design, implement, and test the implementation of relationships among objects using a class hierarchy and inheritance.

Program Outcomes
  1. Provide detailed and accurate descriptions of various physical systems.
  2. Solve multi-step problems in physical analysis.
  3. Identify pertinent elements of physical systems and problems.
  4. Design meaningful experiments and clearly report their conclusions.
  5. Interpret scientific data including the results of experiments designed by others.
  6. Apply mathematical tools to the solution of complex problems.
  7. Use electronic and numerical instruments as tools for investigation and analysis.

College-wide Outcomes
  • Critical Thinking - Critical thinking finds expression in all disciplines and everyday life. It is characterized by an ability to reflect upon thinking patterns, including the role of emotions on thoughts, and to rigorously assess the quality of thought through its work products. Critical thinkers routinely evaluate thinking processes and alter them, as necessary, to facilitate an improvement in their thinking and potentially foster certain dispositions or intellectual traits over time.
  • Quantitative and Symbolic Reasoning - Quantitative Reasoning encompasses abilities necessary for a student to become literate in today’s technological world. Quantitative reasoning begins with basic skills and extends to problem solving.
