Course Code: CEJV 416
This course is the gateway to the Java and Web Programming programs.

Do you think they named it Java because programmers are renowned for their coffee habit? Regardless, this course is a definite stimulant. You'll be introduced to Object Oriented Programming (OOP) using Java. You'll learn fundamental programming structures including data types, operators, branching and looping structures, user-defined methods and basic data structures. You'll also develop classes that use OOP features like encapsulation, inheritance, interfaces, overloading, overriding and polymorphism. You don't need any programming background to take this class but once you're finished, you're sure to want more.

Your take-away

This course is a great way to help you:
• Model data with primitive and user-defined data types;
• Use loops for iterative processing;
• Make decisions using control structures;
• Use the Java language to implement algorithms to solve problems;
• Apply object-oriented methodology to program design;
• Write programs that use basic GUI components;
• Access data in relational databases using JDBC.

Our approach

In this program, you'll delve into the world of Java, led by engaging industry experts who'll guide you through active-learning assignments and projects while encouraging you to get enthusiastically involved in class discussions. Success here requires active participation and a commitment to writing code and solving problems. You should expect to be very hands-on.
