Course Objectives: This course offers an introduction to the Java programming language for those students who have had little or no
background in programming. Toward this goal students will learn how to write programs using the Java language and
to compile and execute them under the Sun Microsystems, Inc. Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition, or other integrated
development environments (IDEs) such as Eclipse, Netbeans.

Learning Outcomes

The students who have succeeded in this course;
1. Define basic concepts and categories of Java programming languages
2. Develop, test and operate Java programmes to address a particular software problem.
3. Define features of primitive data types such as integer, char, double, etc.
4. Define arithmetic, relational and boolean expressions, type conversions, assignment statements, selection and iterative statements and conditional branching.
5. Describe fundamentals of methods, design issues, creating and calling static/nonstatic methods with their input and output parameters, public/private access modifiers and calling
6. Define looping methods(for, while, do-while) in Java language.
7. Demonstrate array and arraylist structures in Java language
8. Define how to generate random numbers with Math class or Random Object
9. Define class structure with methods that has input and output values, build objects and save in array and ArrayList collections

Course Content

The content of the course is composed of the programming basics that include primitive and reference data types , assignments, arithmetic and logical operators, control statements (if/else, switch/case, loops), methods and objects, UML diagrams, set/get methods and constructors, single and multi dimensional arrays, arraylists. Students must attend at least 4 lessons to take the final exam.
