Course Description

Software Engineering is defined as the application of a systematic, disciplined, quantifiable approach to the development, operation, and maintenance of software; that is, the application of engineering to software(*). In the course of "Software Technologies for Information Systems Development", we learned overall outline of information system development. In "System Design", we learned design techniques for information systems. And also, in "Project Management", we learned methods to manage systematically for executing a project of information system development. We can say as this course is to treat the knowledge of learned contents of these courses with engineering approach. In this course, we learn the basis of engineering approach technique to software development.

(*)ISO/IEC/IEEE Systems and Software Engineering Vocabulary.

Students acquire skills related to the diplomatic policy, DP4C.

Course Objectives

The learners will be able to understand the technique of engineering approach for requirement definition, design, implementation, and testing on software development, and work on these tasks practically using tools and so on.

Grading Policy

The students will be evaluated at the following rate: reports (including self check tests on LMS) are 50% and a term-end examination is 50%. Learners who received evaluation over the total 60% will pass this course. If you add original ideas to reports or makes the its content enrich more, additional scores will be given.
