Course Description (Objective)

The course is aimed at understanding state-of-the-art in Software Engineering (SE), which may help students in their own software project development and realization. The course lays a foundation for using approaches and techniques to develop a high-quality software in an effective manner, and also guides students in acquiring and maturing SE discipline.

Upon completion the course students should be able:

to understand principles, methods and technology of software engineering,
to analyze systems in terms of use-cases,
to use in practice principles of Object-Oriented Analysis and Design (OOAD),
to express and document their software designs in UML,
to apply basic principles of software project management.

(Outline of Class and Contents)

Introduction: SoftWare Engineering BOdy of Knowledge (SWEBOK).
