Qt in Higher Education

  • Here at the University of South Africa we use Qt in two of our programming modules to teach object-oriented programming principles as well as some more advanced topics (like XML, reflective programming, concurrent programming, and some network and web programming). We also use it in the teaching of design patterns. These modules are semester modules on the 2nd and 3rd level (of a 3-year degree qualification).

    I was wondering if Qt is being used elsewhere in any higher education settings, and if so, at what levels, and to what ends. If anyone could point me to any published material, that would also be great.

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    I don't know if it's still the case but the University of Applied Science HES-SO // Valais-Wallis (former Ecole d'Ingénieur du Valais) used to teach some modules using Qt. There was also a seminar which subject was to introduce GUI programming on embedded system that made use of Qt for the backend part. The frontend was also using Qt while developing on the desktop but device was using a simple LCD. That would show that you can use the same code base but have different GUI not necessarily using Qt but still Qt powered.

  • Thanks for the pointer. I will try to follow up with them.
