  • Overview

    The unit introduces students to Software Engineering by considering a whole Software Lifecycle. Each step of the lifecycle is treated in detail, such as concept phase, requirement definition, software design, human-computer interaction, implementation, audits, and maintenance. Software design principles and techniques are presented as well as real-time system design. CASE development tools are briefly introduced as well as object oriented programming for which a structured Object Oriented Analysis and Design are considered.

    Learning Outcomes
    By the completion of this unit you should be able to:
    1. Use object-oriented (OO) design and implementation techniques to solve electrical engineering problems.
    2. Describe and follow a typical software engineering process in order to develop a software system.
    3. Work and communicate effectively in a software development team.
