This is an Introductory course in Software Engineering. It underscores the concepts of the design of large complex software systems. Concepts such as systems project management, software engineering methods, object oriented software analysis, user interface design, and software testing techniques and metrics are related to the Software Engineering Approach. The course focuses on ingraining key concepts such as data security, access authorization, web enabled systems, enterprise information systems planning, automated report generation, client side programming, server side programming and advanced user interface designs tools. Students are expected to use this knowledge to design and implement a software Engineering project, which will be evaluated as part of the course.
(i) To introduce and train the student in the foundational concepts of software engineering
(ii) To advance the student’s understanding and application of the principles of software engineering and emerging software engineering paradigms for the design for large complex software systems.
(iii) To design and develop large well constructed software systems for modern enterprise, industrial, wireless and medical systems.
Each category of items listed here will have homework assignments.
Project Write-up and Demonstration 40%
Problem Definition And Analysis 20%
Solution Synthesis and Coding 20%
Testing and Evaluation 20%
A – 90+
B – 80-89
C – 70-79
D – 60-69
Late assignments shall not be accepted except with valid documented excuse acceptable at the discretion of the instructor.
Any student who needs special accommodation should consult the Instructor as soon as possible.
