Specialisation and progression relative to the degree regulations

Single subject course. This course is not part of any main subject.


This course aims to provide the student with in-depth knowledge of programming using the C# language and the .NET Framework’s advanced data structures, with a strong emphasis on the key concepts of object-orientation, encapsulation, inheritance, and polymorphism. The student will also learn to create advanced user interfaces using Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF). The course also introduces the student to the .NET’s new framework, .NET Core to develop platform-independent applications in C#.


The course covers the following main topics:

  • Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF)
  • Inheritance and polymorphism,
  • Dynamic binding, abstract classes, and interfaces
  • Structured exception handling
  • Generics, data structures and collections
  • File handling and object serialization
  • Delegates, events and event handlers
  • .NET Core
  • Tuple, Discards and other new C# features.
