The Unified Modeling Language

Overview

Students learn how to identify and design objects, classes, and their relationships to each other, which includes links, associations, and inheritance. A strong emphasis is placed on diagram notation for use cases, class and object representation, links and associations, and object messages. This course utilizes UML 2.0 notation

Audience

Analysts, designers, and programmers responsible for applying OO techniques in their software engineering projects.

Prerequisites

Strong understanding of Object-Oriented concepts is required. Experience designing or programming in an Object-Oriented language is also required.

Course duration

2 Days
