The objective of the programming project is to learn advanced programming skills in a suitable programming language, for example C++. The programming tasks are completed individually or in small groups. Topics covered include:
  • Variables, expressions, operators
  • Elementary data types, references
  • Control flow
  • Data structures
  • Use of libraries
  • Object-oriented design

If necessary, hints and a short repetition of basics in the programming language used will be given.

Competencies / intended learning achievements

Learning Outcomes:
  • Advanced programming skills in a modern programming language, e.g. C++.
  • Software development in smaller teams
