    Suppose you are hired as a software engineer in an XYZ organization for maintaining design of an existing educational institute system. For this purpose, you will need to apply the software design principles for a good maintainable design. All the changes in the system design should be localized, so that, it should have a minimal effect on other parts of the system. A small portion of code from the existing system is given below. This code is observed to be loosely cohesive. You are required to apply the software design principles and make the code highly cohesive.

             string course_code;
             string course_name;
             int credit_hours;
             int enrolled_student;
             int student_id;
             string student_name;
             int studentCurrentSemster;
             float student_gpa; 
          void setCourseCode(string);
          void setCourseName(string);
          void setCreditHours(int);
          void countEnrolledStudent();
          void setStudentId(int);
          string getCourseCode();
          string getCourseName();
          int getCreditHours();
          int getStudentId();
