Aim: To direct toward or intend for a particular goal
Objective: Something worked toward or striven for; a goal

They look pretty much the same to me.

If I had to differentiate, I would say an aim is broader and an objective is more specific; for example

The aim of the course is to teach how to programm c++
The objective of the lesson is use the for loop to sum an array

An aim is like a heuristic.  "Make this program run as fast as possible"
An objective is a goal.  "Make this program run in less than 3.2 seconds"
