We wish to be able to produce large software systems which are reliable and error-free, both on time and at low cost. This is an extraordinarily difficult task. The discipline of Software Engineering encompasses the theories, methods and tools that can be applied to the problem in an attempt to achieve these aims. Software practitioners must be aware of and be able to apply modern Software Engineering techniques in order to produce the best possible software.
In this course the student will gain an understanding of the methods, tools and procedures of software engineering. Methods covered include a wide range of activities such as project planning, system and software requirements analysis, design, development, configuration management, testing, documentation and maintenance of software. Industry standard system modelling and specification notations will be used throughout the course.
