COMP2711 - Computer Programming 2
Enrolment not permitted
1 of COMP8712, COMP9712 has been successfully completed
Topic description
This topic is intended for students who have completed several courses in programming, with some background in object-oriented programming. It covers the development of solutions to complex problems based on complex algorithms involving many, possibly distributed, components in complex structures.

Problems will be taken from a number of areas such as robotics, image processing, animation and information retrieval and analysis.

Various computational models will be used such as mobile agents, distributed processing and evolutionary.
Educational aims
This topic aims to equip students with the skills needed to solve complex programming problems, such as applications that provide an interface to real-world data. The focus is on object-oriented techniques for representing and manipulating program data using either predefined components or custom-designed components.
Expected learning outcomes
At the completion of the topic, students are expected to be able to:

  1. Analyse complex problems and develop algorithmic solutions
  2. Develop programs that solve complex problems using a range of computational models
  3. Make use of APIs that support the computational models used in the topic
  4. Determine the time and space complexity of complex algorithms
