    Default How to fulfill this program

    Hello java members i got a programm to complete and im a lil bit confused.Let me explain you somethings first.I got some classes like UniversityDepartment & PolytechnicDepartment these 2 classes extends *AcademicDepartment* class.And the problem want me to do this.The AcademicDepartment can have pre-graduate program & after-graduate program.And the departments will be 2 University & Polytechnic.For a department to be polytechnic or University depending on the number of labs that have in pre-gruduate program.So if we are in pre-graduate or after-graduate program i think the user must type it from keyboard and if we are in pre-graduate we also must be asked how many labs we got to see if we are in polytechnic or university.So How i will do this?.I will give u an example of my code.

    import java.io.*;
    public class  AcademicDepartment {
    	private String names;
    	private String labs;
    	private int teachers;
    	private int graduates;
    	private boolean studies;
    	public void infostudies() throws IOException{
    	    System.out.println("Enter the department you want.Press 1 for pre-graduate program  or 2 for after-graduate program" );  
    	    boolean studies = "";  
    	    BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(System.in));  
    	    studies = br.readLine(); 
    	    if (studies == 1){
    	    		System.out.println("You are in pre-graduate program");
    			   System.out.println("Enter the number of labs");
    			   String labs = ""; 
    			   BufferedReader br1 = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(System.in));
    			   labs = br1.readLine();
    			   if (labs > 5){
    				   System.out.println("The department is polytechnic");
    		    if (studies < 5 ){
    		    	System.out.println("The department is University");
    		    	System.out.println("Wrong number try again");
    	public AcademicDepartment(String names,String labs,int teachers,int graduates){
    		names = new String(names);
    		this.labs = labs;
    		this.teachers = teachers;
    		this.graduates = graduates;
    	public void printdepartmentinfo(){
    		System.out.println("The names are:" + names);
    		System.out.println("The labs are:" + labs);
    		System.out.println("The GRADUATES are:" + graduates);
    		System.out.println("The teachers are:" + teachers);

    Read the API doc for the readLine() method to see what it does and what type of data it returns. http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/api/

    It looks like there are many compiler errors that need to be fixed. Copy the full text of the compiler error messages and paste it here.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
