Teaching Period (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

I-II (Autumn) , III-IV (Spring)

Learning Outcomes (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

You 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). You are able to read and understand software engineering literature, and motivate the importance of software engineering.

Content (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

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.

Assessment Methods and Criteria (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020):
