About the Course:

This is a first course in computer science, using Java, an object oriented programming (OOP) language. You do not need to have experience with Java, but some basic knowledge of some programming language is required. Students design, code, and debug programs using Java as we explore object oriented programming (OOP) concepts.

Group project:
Students are required to work in groups to produce a final groups’ projects (worth 10% of your grade.) For the group project, students will develop a game in Java. The group project is an opportunity for students to experience Game development while working within a group, similar to the way projects are created in the real world. Each team will create a fully functioning game that employs a clean design, intuitive graphical interface, and technical functionality. This will be a great opportunity to for students to learn GUI programming in Java while building fun and interactive games.
