Software engineering

Individual course

Max amount of FITech students: 100

The course provides a broad but practical view of industrial software development.

Students learn the main problems, models and methods of software engineering, including traditional and agile/lean software development. The main software engineering activities, including software requirements engineering, design, implementation, testing and deployment are covered. Supporting workflows, e.g. configuration management and project management are  also discussed.

The course is delivered using Moodle. Students pass the course by doing one Moodle module each week, according to a fixed schedule.

Each weekly module consists of a video lecture, a set of readings, a quiz, and a written assignment.

After the course, students have a working understanding of software development in industry and the necessary knowledge and skills to pursue further studies in software engineering.

Students can present and motivate the phases of software engineering (requirements engineering, software architecture, software design and implementation, software testing, software evolution) and the main cross-cutting activities of software engineering (software processes, agile software development, configuration management).

Schedule:

No presence required. No particular schedule except for the deadines for exercises. Date for the possible examination to be announced later.
