OVERVIEW

Software engineering is a discipline dealing with all aspects of software development
    - discipline = subject of study course
    - Software engineering = a set of theories, methods, techniques and 
      tools to develop quality software in a professional manner

 

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course aims to introduce the scientific and professional principles of software engineering basis, addressing the various stages of code development: planning, design, modeling, implementation, testing and verification, maintenance.

After completing the course, the student will have acquired a basic knowledge of UML .

Teaching methods

  • Traditional lecture
  • Labs and supplementary activities using AulaWeb

AulaWeb will be used for three purposes: as a repository of course materials; as a channel for the bureaucratic communications, explanations, discussions related to the course etc .; and finally to facilitate teamwork
