After completing this course, the students will be able to write programs in an object-oriented manner. More specifically:
  • Making good and correct use of object-oriented programming concepts
  • Basic insights in data structures, algorithm efficiency, multithreading, and other specific libraries.
  • How to apply the concepts above in C++
Please note that the course information below corresponds to the course of ‘21/’22. This course is currently being updated for the MSc Robotics programme and therefore changes in course content might occur.

This course teaches object-oriented programming concepts, as well as basic insights in data structures, algorithm efficiency, and multithreading. Next to the lectures, tutoring sessions are scheduled where students can work on weekly assignments. The last weeks are spent on a final assignment in which students need to use additional software libraries, without additional lectures.

Students work in pairs of two on weekly and final assignments, which are all graded. The final grade is a weighted average of these grades.

The lectures and weekly assignments are the same as the Programming 2 for EE course (part of module Network Systems module). The final assignment is larger than the one of the EE course.
