Entry requirements

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

Prerequisites

The student must be well acquainted with programming in at least one high level programming language and must have used advanced algorithms and data structures. Elementary knowledge about object-oriented analysis and design. The student must also be acquainted to work without a central course book.

Intended learning outcomes

The purpose of the course is that the students shall acquire good knowledge in large-scale software engineering. After the course the students shall be able to:

  • explain and exemplify basic concepts in the area of large-scale software engineering
  • explain how to specify, model, implement and test a software system
  • explain how to execute a software development project

Course content

The following subjects are covered in the lectures:

  • Requirements.
  • Planning and processes.
  • Design and Architecture.
  • Testing and Software Configuration Management.
  • Software Quality.

Teaching and working methods

The course contains lectures focusing on the theoretical parts of software development, with examples from industry and research. Small practical exercises and discussions are performed.
