The University of New England is the only Australian public university to be awarded the maximum 5 stars for Overall Experience by the Good Universities Guide, 13 years in a row. UNE has delivered distance education since 1955—that’s longer than any other Australian university. Perhaps that’s why students continue to rate UNE so highly for student satisfaction and teaching quality. With over 170 degrees offered online, and more than 22,000 students, UNE is an expert in online education.

- apply object oriented design principles to algorithm design and analysis; and
- develop computer programs using Java, which is an object oriented programming language.
- Topics will be available to enrolled students in the subjects moodle site approximately one week prior to the commencement of the teaching period.
You must either have successfully completed the following subject(s) before starting this subject, or currently be enrolled in the following subject(s) in a prior study period; or enrol in the following subject(s) to study prior to this subject:
Please note that your enrolment in this subject is conditional on successful completion of these prerequisite subject(s). If you study the prerequisite subject(s) in the study period immediately prior to studying this subject, your result for the prerequisite subject(s) will not be finalised prior to the close of enrolment. In this situation, should you not complete your prerequisite subject(s) successfully you should not continue with your enrolment in this subject. If you are currently enrolled in the prerequisite subject(s) and believe you may not complete these all successfully, it is your responsibility to reschedule your study of this subject to give you time to re-attempt the prerequisite subject(s)
To enrol in this subject you will need to pass UNE-COSC110 subject. Please note as UNE results are released after the close of enrolment date, your enrolment into this subject will be withdrawn if you do not receive a satisfactory result for UNE-COSC110.

Object-oriented programming is one of several popular programming paradigms in use today. It is based around the concept of 'classes' and their instances, known also as 'objects' and their interactions. Objects contain both data, called attributes, and code, known as methods. This subject introduces you to techniques for computer program development using Java, an object-oriented programming language. You will explore topics that cover the breadth of this coding style, building a well-rounded understanding of its underlying concepts. These include classes, objects, encapsulation, inheritance, polymorphism, single and multidimensional arrays, file input/output, decision structures and loops. You will also examine programming language features for parameter passing, exception handling, and simple user interface development. With skills in object-oriented programming, you will be equipped to generate clean and efficient code with diverse practical applications.
Assessment 1 to 3: Programming assignments. All assignments must be attempted. Relates to Learning Outcomes 1-3; Final Examination: 2 hrs 15 mins duration. It is mandatory to pass the Final Examination in order to pass the unit. Relates to Learning Outcomes 1-3. UNE manages supervised exams associated with your UNE subjects. Prior to census date, UNE releases exam timetables. They’ll email important exam information directly to your UNE email address.
