SE1021
Software Development II

Students design, document and implement software classes and incorporate these classes into larger software applications. Topics covered include abstraction, encapsulation, declaring and implementing abstract data types, interfaces, inheritance, polymorphism, and simple event-driven programming. (prereq: SE-1011) (3-2-4)

My job as your instructor is to make it as easy as possible for you to learn the material covered in this course. Please ask questions in and out of class. Dr. Taylor
