  • Prerequisites:

    CMPT 130.



A second course in systems-oriented programming and computing science that builds upon the foundation set in CMPT 130 using a systems-oriented language such as C or C++. Topics: a review of the basic elements of programming; introduction to object-oriented programming (OOP); techniques for designing and testing programs; use and implementation of elementary data structures and algorithms; introduction to embedded systems programming. Students with credit for CMPT 125, 126, or 129 may not take this course for further credit. Quantitative.


This course is a rigorous introduction to object-oriented programming and computing science using C++, intended for students who have already taken CMPT 130 as an introduction to algorithms and programming. Students will learn basic principles of algorithm design and basic and intermediate techniques for object-oriented software development. It is expected that students already know the C or C++ programming language.


- Brief review of elementary programming and introduction to C++.
- Basic object-oriented programming and software design.
- Polymorphism and inheritance.
- Program design, specification, and testing; problem solving.
- Abstract data types; elementary data structures; fundamental algorithms; recursion.
- An informal introduction to computability and complexity analysis.
- Templates and the Standard Template Library



Course work will consists of lab exercises, assignments, a midterm exam, and a final exam. The exact marking scheme will be given in the first week of the course.


Students must attain an overall passing grade on the weighted average of exams in the course in order to obtain a clear pass (C- or better).

Registrar Notes:

SFU’s Academic Integrity web site http://students.sfu.ca/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating.  Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.

Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community.  Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
