Programme Overview

In case you have received a "Transaction Failure" message, then please wait for 2 or 3 working days. If your name still doesn't appear on the Confirmed Participants list then only send an email to dbpaccounts@cse.iitb.ac.in

Go beyond the basics of programming to understand object-oriented methodology, the approach to modular and reusable software systems. You will learn to:

  • How to abstract a problem in an object oriented style
  • Object oriented programming, basics to advanced level, using C++
  • How to use the Standard Template Library (STL)

This course will be conducted in a self-paced mode, i.e. all the lecture videos, slides, reading materials, activities, and graded assignments will be released on when the course starts. This gives you the flexibility of progressing and completing the graded assignments at your own pace. However, but one would need to complete them before the course ends.

Who Should Attend

The course can be taken by any learner who wishes to enhance programming skills by abstracting a problem using OOP concepts. Knowledge of basic programming concepts, as covered in the ‘Programming Basics’ course is necessary.

Course Fee and Certification

The registration fee for the course is Rs. 475/-. However, register before 16 August 2020 for Rs. 375/- only to avail an early bird registration discount. Please note that the registration fee once paid is neither refundable nor adjustable under any circumstances.

Important payment instructions:
In case of a course fee transaction failure, the participant will get an auto generated mail with instructions for further process. Please go through the mail carefully. If the amount is already debited to your account, please do not make another payment. In case of a double payment (or more than once), please send a mail to dbpaccounts@cse.iitb.ac.in requesting for a refund. The participant will also have to check the following link for his/her vendor creation in order to get a refund. IIT Bombay will not be able to process the refund (for any reason) if the vendor creation, as per IIT Bombay's requirement, is not completed by the participant.
