The pedagogical approach of the proposed curriculum comprises of a set of homemade projects for facilitating the students to quickly learn the essential C++ and OOP skills by accordingly implementing a large-scale communication software system.

From the students' survey and grade assessment results, the proposed project-based curriculum and practical homemade projects demonstrates its effectiveness and feasibility for motivating the students' interests on C++ and OOP skills and incorporating these skills for developing practical and large-scale software.
