Producing software systems on time and at low cost, that are reliable and error-free, is generally considered a difficult task. The discipline of Software Engineering encompasses the theories, methods and tools that can be applied to the problem to achieve these aims. Software developers must be able to appropriately select from predictive (plan-driven) approaches or adaptive (iterative/agile) approaches and apply modern software engineering techniques effectively to produce quality software solutions.

In this course the student will gain knowledge of the methods, tools and procedures of software engineering. Methods covered include a wide range of activities such as project planning, system and software requirements analysis, design, development, configuration management, testing, documentation and maintenance of software. Industry standard system modelling and specification notations will be used throughout the course.
