Title:OO Analysis and Design
Long Title:OO Analysis and Design
Module Code:SOFT7005
 
Credits: 5
NFQ Level:Intermediate
Field of Study: Computer Software
Valid From: Semester 1 - 2017/18 ( September 2017 )
Module Delivered in 4 programme(s)
Next Review Date: November 2021
Module Coordinator: TIM HORGAN
Module Author: MARY DAVIN
Module Description: Object-oriented analysis and design (OOAD) is a popular approach for analysing and designing an application to foster better stakeholder communication and product quality. In this module students will study Object-oriented modeling(OOM) techniques supported by the Unified Modeling Language(UML) framework and learn its application throughout the entire software development life cycle.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Differentiate between object-oriented analysis and design.
LO2 Create models for a software system using UML notation and an appropriate tool.
LO3 Apply design principles and patterns to design classes.
LO4 Reverse engineer code into software models at different levels of abstraction.
Pre-requisite learning
Module Recommendations
This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is strongly recommended before enrolment in this module. You may enrol in this module if you have not acquired the recommended learning but you will have considerable difficulty in passing (i.e. achieving the learning outcomes of) the module. While the prior learning is expressed as named CIT module(s) it also allows for learning (in another module or modules) which is equivalent to the learning specified in the named module(s).

Incompatible Modules
These are modules which have learning outcomes that are too similar to the learning outcomes of this module. You may not earn additional credit for the same learning and therefore you may not enrol in this module if you have successfully completed any modules in the incompatible list.
