Learning outcomes of the course
This course provides an introduction to software engineering methods and techniques and their application in building software products. The objectives are: to teach to model software system by simulating problems of real subject field in logic model; to use sophisticated design tools; to prepare documentation and to prototype software product. Specifically, highlights the following study aims and competencies:
- to increase knowledge about software engineering methods and practices,
- to use tools of full software engineering development lifecycle, from initial requirements specification, design and development,
- to increase teamwork and virtual collaboration skills,
- to acquire software engineering project development competencies.
