Intended learning outcomes

The course develops the students programming abilities so that he/she can solve easier tasks with the help of a computer. The course also lays a foundation for further studies in software engineering.
The student will be able to:
- Choose an appropriate form for data-storage (e.g. primitive values, vectors, lists or objects) and use the stored data in different ways
- Implement conditional actions and repetitions
- Develop appropriate methods, classes and packages to implement different operations
- Create objects of different standard classes and use their services
- Handle exception situations in a program
- Create programs that communicate with the standard input unit, standard output unit and the files in the file system
- Create appropriate object types to be able to implement given services

Course main content

- Store data as primitive values and exert different operations with them
- Implement conditional actions and repetitions
- Store data in a vector of the inbuilt type
- Distribute code between different methods, classes and packages
- Use objects of the classes that exist in the standard library
- Exception situations in a program
- Input, output and files
- Define own object types. Nestled and inner classes. Lists.
- Inheritance and interface


Two work-forms are used in this course: lectures and laboratory work. In a lecture (for all students) different concepts are introduced and developed, and these concepts are illustrated with appropriate examples. The teacher and the students discuss these concepts.
A laboratory work further develops the concepts that were developed in the lectures. The student solves different problems with the help of a computer, and in that way verifies and deepens her/his knowledge and abilities. To be able to actively participate at the laboratory work, the student has to make all necessary preparations in advance.

  • LAB1 - Laboratory Work, 4.5, grade scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
  • TEN1 - Examination, 3.0, grade scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F

During the course the student does and presents a certain amount of example-programs. An exam is done in the end of the course. To be able to do the examination the student must present all the example-programs first.
One grade is given for the example-programs, one for the final examination, and then one final grade for the course as a whole. Both for the grade for the example-programs and the final examinations the actual grading scale (A, B, C, D, E, Fx, F) is used.

The final grade for the whole course is a rounded mean value of the grade for the examination and the grade for the example-programs (the mean value rounds up).
