Advanced programming

This is the study programme for 2020/2021.

Students will learn to use advanced programming in a strongly typed, objected oriented programming language. Apply software development methodologies such as agile in developing a project.

Learning outcome

  • Use of strongly typed programming languages
  • Objected oriented programming and polymorphism
  • Software engineering and development methodologies such as agile (scrum and kanban)
  • SOLID principles and design patterns
  • Best coding practices
  • Concurrency
  • Testing, debugging, version control, code review

  • Be capable of designing and developing complex software systems.
  • Know how to apply design patterns

General competence:
  • Capable of developing advanced computer programs


  • Software development methodologies for example, agile methodologies such as scrum, kanban
  • Programming paradigms such as object oriented programming, functional programming, procedural programming, SOLID principle, Design Patterns, Generics,
  • Advanced data structures and algorithms
  • Concurrency
  • Use of compilers, build tools
  • Use of version control (git) and coding in teams

Required prerequisite knowledge

DAT110 Introduction to Programming

Recommended previous knowledge

DAT200 Algorithms and Datastructures, DAT220 Database Systems, DAT310 Web Programming


Written and oral exam
Weight Duration Marks Aid
Written exam3/54 hoursA - F
Programming project and oral test2/5 A - F
Project consisting one large assignment. The project is to be performed in a group. The grade for the project will be based on the submitted program code and an oral hearing in groups of the submitted program code. Both parts must be done before final grade is given. Each group member can receive a different grade based on their performance during the oral hearing.
If a student fails the project, she/he has to take this part next time the subject is lectured.
Written exam is digital (Inspera).

Coursework requirements

3 compulsory lab assignments
Three mandatory individual lab exercises (programming exercises). Pass/Fail. All programming exercises must be passed to attend for the written exam. Approval may take place through the Autograder system for automated evaluation, followed by in-lab approval.
Completion of mandatory lab assignments are to be made within the allotted time period. Absence due to illness or for other reasons must be communicated as soon as possible to the laboratory personnel. One cannot expect that provisions for completion of the lab assignments at other times are made unless prior arrangements with the laboratory personnel have been agreed upon.
Failure to complete the assigned labs on time or not having them approved will result in barring from taking the exam of the course.
