The objective of the course is to help the Java programmer to be productive in the C++ programming environment. Topics include the similarities and differences between Java and C++ with special attention to pointers, operator overloading, templates, the STL, the preprocessor, and the C++ Runtime Environment.
Starting Fall 2007, CSE 30 is removed as a prerequisite and CSE 12 is added. Java is the preferred language of choice at most Universities for introductory and advanced object-oriented programming courses. However, C++ is still extensively used in industry and in some special purpose advanced courses as well as embedded systems and several engineering disciplines. The course helps to bridge the gap for Java programmers to learn essential C++ programming to be productive in C++ development environments. P/NP grading only.
CSE 12 with a passing grade of C- or better. Please see Prerequisites Page.
