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.
After the course, the student
- has a working understanding of software development in industry, as well as the necessary knowledge and skills to pursue further studies in software engineering.
- can present and motivate the phases of software engineering (requirements engineering, software architecture, software design and implementation, software testing, software evolution) and the main crosscutting activities of software engineering (software processes, agile software development, configuration management).
- is able to read and understand software engineering literature, and motivate the importance of software engineering.
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.
Lectures 30 h, exercises 60 h, independent study 45 h.
