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.


Being fluent in handling Unix systems. Good knowledge of programming. Basic knowledge of data structures and algorithms.

Intended learning outcomes

After completing this course students should:

  • be able to describe the basic concepts and tasks within Software Engineering
  • be able to model and design non trivial computer programs
  • be able to give an account of the phases of a project, and utilize these in the planning a project of their own
  • be able to in writing and orally describe the requirements, design, and implementation of a system, and independently analyze them
  • be able to apply a given way of working in a small team
  • be able to describe and analyze ethical aspects related to the subject


Course content

Overview of Software Engineering: basic concepts.
Project work: planning, methodology, phases, mile stones.
Documents: requirements and design specifications, user manuals, technical documents.
Oral presentation of program design and software product. The working conditions are quite free and demands good discipline, but the advisor will, if necesseray, guide and support the work.

Teaching and working methods

The course consits of a theory part and a project part. The theory part will provide knowledge necessary to implement the project, as well as an overview of the area of Software Engineering. The theory part also includes a seminary where related ethical aspects are discussed. The project part of the course consists of a small programming project carried out in groups of three students. During the project a number of documents should be produced, and the program design is to be presented at a seminar. The course is given during the whole semester.
