FSI-DPTCompulsoryBachelor's (1st cycle)Acad. year: 2017/2018Summer semester1, 2. year of study5  credits

Object oriented programming and basics programming principles are presented . These principles are closely linked to systematic design of inherited classes.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students will learn the methodology of program development based on the object-oriented programming and will acquire skills to solve a problem through object technologies.


The standard high school computer literacy is expected.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods

The course is taught through lectures explaining the basic principles and theory of the discipline. Exercises are focused on practical topics presented in lectures.

Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes

Course-unit credit requirements: active participation in seminars and individual elaboration of an assigned project. The examination comprises written and oral parts. The written part is represented by a test with four questions. Oral part consists of discussion on the written part with possible complementary questions. The evaluation is fully in competence of a tutor according to the valid directives of BUT.

Language of instruction


Work placements

Not applicable.


The introduction to the object oriented methodology of work with a computer. The algorithmic thinking extent and structured approach to problem solving. The development of computer creativity and a structured approach to problem solving.

Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences

The attendance at lectures is recommended while at seminars it is obligatory. Education runs according to week schedules. The form of compensation of missed seminars is fully in the competence of a tutor.
