This course is normally taken in the 5th or 6th semester. It is the first upper-division course in the option sequence. The course is intended to provide students with a background in object-oriented design and object-oriented application development. Students will learn the fundamentals of object-oriented analysis, design, and modeling. They will apply design concepts and develop the skills necessary to bring an idea through the different phases of the application development lifecycle. The course normally involves students working on teams to design and develop working application prototypes.

Upon completion of this course, students will be able to apply object-oriented design principles using object-oriented modeling and programming languages, show how object-oriented principles increase the quality of complex applications, and begin development of the team skills necessary when developing complex systems.
