Course description
Software engineering is the application of a systematic, disciplined, quantifiable approach to the development, operation and maintenance of software. This course covers the basics of the software engineering and introduces what is designing software actually. We focus on the purpose and various techniques of software modelling, which is highly important in software design.
Purpose of class
The aim of this course is to help students acquire basic knowledge of software engineering, It also enhances the development of students' skill in software modeling, which is fundamental of software design.
Goals and objectives
  1. To understand the basics of software design.
  2. To be able to read correctly documents described in UML (unified modeling languages).
  3. To understand methods of describing various aspects of software.
