Course Description
Software Engineering immerses the student in the process of software engineering, which involves identifying the components of a software system, breaking complex components into smaller and more manageable abstract pieces, and modeling the entire system. These tasks help software teams better handle the design, planning, and development of software systems. In this course the student will be exposed to a variety of techniques for planning and modeling along with strategies for gathering user input and for executing software development.

Learning Outcomes
Through the Portfolio Assessment process, students will demonstrate that they can appropriately address the following outcomes:

  • Explain what is encompassed by the term software engineering.
  • Describe software engineering process layers and apply the process framework to software development.
  • Analyze the similarities and differences between the various process models.
  • Discuss agile development principles.
  • Discuss requirements modeling and essential design concepts.
  • Discuss the significance of object-oriented programming and its application to software engineering.
  • Explain the importance of the user interface design and analyze the major design issues involved.
