Course Objectives The objective of this course is to provide students a common understanding of software engineering principles. It is organized so as to, first, provide a general introduction to software development and identify the important phases of any software project. Then, each of the phases is examined in detail, in order to give the student a picture of the current state of software development.
Course Description The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Be able to explain engineering, software, computer and system engineering
  • Be able to define software processes
  • Be able to gather the software requirements
  • Be able to design using UML
  • Be able to explain the software verification and validation
Course Content The course provides the fundamental concepts of software engineering discipline and to provide insight into abstraction, problem solving and systematic view.
