OBJECT-ORIENTED MODELING AND DISCRETE STRUCTURES | EDAF10 |

**Aim**

The course will give ability to sustainable and resource aware construction of programs that can be reused and modified with respect to changing requirements in an industrial context.

*Knowledge and understanding*

For a passing grade the student must

- be able to identify the use of common design principles and design patterns in given programs. This and all other course objectives refer to programs with some hundreds or thousands lines of code.
- understand the mathematical notation and abstractions that are the basis for discrete models in computer science.

*Skills and abilities*

For a passing grade the student must

- be able to design and implement object-oriented programs with many classes and a few packages.
- be able to choose and implement suitable design patterns in typical problems.
- be able to use the central parts of an integrated development environment to design, implementation, and refactoring of programs.
- be able to describe program design with UMLÂ (Unified Modeling Language).

*Judgement and approach*

For a passing grade the student must

- be able to evaluate a program design with respect to design principles.
- be able to construct programs that are easy to understand for those who need to modify them.
- be able use mathematical notation to descripe and reason about discrete models.
