Starting level and linkage with other courses
To enter the course the student has to have good knowledge and skills in object oriented programming and the development tools (E.g. C# programming language, .NET platform, Visual Studio IDE). There might be a level test before getting to the course. First and second year students might get into the course if there are free seats and they have had good success on application development and programming courses. Up to 30 students will be taken to the course.
Upon successful completion of the course, the student
- is able to develop sound Java applications for 1-2 Java platforms, but not all.
- is able to further develop his/her Java development skills.
- understands the Java platform fundamentals.

Cooperation with the business community
In the future we might have visiting lecturers from firms doing Java development.

Assessment components and their respective weights
Small exams, possibly 4-5 of them 50 %
Activity in the labs and the final project 50 %
The student should pass the examinations, and complete 75 % of the assignments in order to pass the course. Obligatory attendance 80% of the contact hours OR making the extra tasks that are for making up the absence.
The assessment of one’s own learning does not influence the grade. The assignment is the same for all courses/modules and the answers will also be used for course/module development. The assignment is completed online in WinhaOpaali.
