Learning to Program with Java
Students Will Learn:
- Fundamental Elements of Programming
- Classes, Objects and Methods
- Structured Programming Techniques
- Arrays and Data Structures
- Exception Handling
- String Handling
- Fundamental Algorithms
- GUI Programming Concepts
Course Description: This hands on Java Programming course provides an introduction to programming using the Java language. Students are introduced to the application development cycle, structure of programs, and specific language syntax. The course introduces important algorithmic constructs, string and character manipulation, dynamic memory allocation, standard I/O, and fundamental object-oriented programming concepts. The course explains the use of inheritance and polymorphism early on so the students can practice extensively in the hands on labs. Structured programming techniques and error handling are emphasized. The course includes the processing of command line arguments and environment variables so students will be able to write flexible, user-friendly programs. Comprehensive hands on exercises are integrated throughout to reinforce learning and develop real competency.
This class is intended for non-programmers. Students who already understand fundamental structured programming and object-oriented techniques should attend the Java Programming course instead of this more introductory course.
Course Prerequisites: Familiarity with computers.

"The course was a good ice-breaker to the world of Java. I feel much confident now to explore my automation skills."
"In my 15 years working at Seagate I have taken part in a myriad of instructor led training courses and I can say that this course has been the best by far. The material was presented and explained in such a way that my interest was held for the entire duration. I feel that I have achieved more in this week than I anticipated."
