# Module Learning Outcome Description
MLO1 Apply object-oriented programming in the use of external apis.
MLO2 Design, implement, unit-test and debug simple software systems.
MLO3 Document and implement solutions using simple UML specification diagrams
MLO4 Evaluate the suitability of adopting a particular design pattern to provide a solution for a given software development problem.
MLO5 Evaluate the need for refactoring when presented with existing solutions.
Pre-requisite learning
Module Recommendations
This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is strongly recommended before enrolment in this module. You may enrol in this module if you have not acquired the recommended learning but you will have considerable difficulty in passing (i.e. achieving the learning outcomes of) the module. While the prior learning is expressed as named DkIT module(s) it also allows for learning (in another module or modules) which is equivalent to the learning specified in the named module(s).
