Beschrijving

Software systems are typically built over a longer period of time with diverse teams (in terms of culture and skill sets), as well as with constantly changing requirements. This results in various challenges with respect to project management. Moreover, the wishes of a client are not always easy to translate to a set of functional requirements for a software system. In addition, various non-functional requirements, such as, performance, maintenance costs, and reliability of the software system, come into play once a system has been deployed.

In the course “Software Engineering,” we study techniques for managing software development processes and for engineering high-quality software systems. These skills are honed in a lab assignment, where teams of students are assigned to develop software in real-world projects for actual clients. In the lab, students learn to apply their knowledge, while contributing working software systems to clients, consisting of LIACS staff and other partners.

  • Development processes and methodology

  • Software project management

  • Business processes
