ECTS credits: 7

Course objective

The objective of this course is to introduce the discipline of software engineering through the process of requirements collection, design, development, software management and documentation, using the computer science technologies, project management techniques, engineering, mathematics, design and other disciplines. Introduction to the production of high-quality software solutions and considering the characteristics that contribute to quality. Understanding the role and responsibility of client, user and participant in software development.

Course outcome

The students will master the techniques that are used for collecting the requirements, understand the importance of the requirements collection phase, learn the Software Requirements Specification (SRS) Template according to IEEE standard, the types of agile methods, Scrum development model, types of notation and description of software design, entity–relationship diagram, state diagram, Jackson structure diagram, UML (Unified Modeling Language) modeling form, the scope and life cycle of a variable.

The students will learn how to properly comment on a document, use variables to create a tidier, more readable program, properly name functions, implement naming conventions, the relationship between software testing and software quality, code inspection, Black box and White box testing techniques, the differences between corrective, adaptive and perfective maintenance, what bodies are entitled to issue standard, the concept of SC7 standards collection, ISO/IEC 12207 standard, ISO/IEC 12207 standard, software quality and software presentation.
