Title Object-Oriented Design and Software Applications

Credits 3

Description IST 311 will be among the courses making up the System

Development Option in the Baccalaureate degree in

Information Sciences and Technology program and would

normally be taken in the 5th or 6th semester. It is the first

course in the Option sequence. The course is intended to

provide students with background in object-oriented design

and programming. Students will learn basic object concepts

and develop skills to implement programs utilizing object tools.

To prepare for such a work environment, students will learn to

work together to design, implement and test projects. IST 311

would normally be taken in the 5th or 6th semester.

Prerequisite(s): CMPSC 101 or CMBD 204, IST 240.

CSE 120, Intermediate Programming, handles some topics

contained in IST 311, but the focus of CSE 120 is not on

object-oriented design. Rather a major portion of its content is

on top-down programming. CSE 120 includes numerical

methods and algorithm analysis, areas not included in IST

311. IST 311 will introduce students to team-based projects,

as well as design principles and object concepts. Student

performance will be evaluated by means of assignments,

examinations, and team-based projects.

Upon completion of the course, students will be able to apply

system development principles using an object-oriented
