Programming languages are many and varied, and like natural languages they encompass different styles (or paradigms). These different programming paradigms provide for a variety of ways to tackle computational problems and thus some languages are better suited to certain problems than others. In this unit students will expand their study of programming paradigms beyond procedural and object-oriented methods covered in earlier units, investigating functional and parallel programming, as well as real-time systems programming. Through both study of theoretical aspects of programming languages and practical investigations of program development, students will develop an understanding of, and appreciation for, the fundamental design of programming languages.

Hurdle requirement

To be eligible to obtain a pass in this unit, students must meet certain milestones as part of the portfolio.
