CS 143 Computer Science II Java

5 credits


This class teaches Object Oriented Programming (OOP) concepts and introduces elementary data structures as well as algorithms associated with them. The topics include classes, interfaces, inheritance, OOP design, exceptions, data structures (arrays, lists, queues, stacks, and trees), and algorithm performance analysis.
