SWE 4724 - SOFTWARE ENGINEERING PROJECT         

 

 

Text: No textbook required

 

Prerequisites: SWE 4624, ENGL 2010, and SPCH 2400

 

Course Objectives:

 

1.      Students will understand and be able to apply software engineering techniques and processes covering the entire software development life cycle.

2.      Students will demonstrate the ability to work as part of a self-managing software development team.

3.      Students will be able to use current tools to effectively analyze, design, implement, test and deliver a complete software system.

4.      Students will demonstrate the ability to document their software system to an acceptable standard.

5.      Students will analyze proposed design in terms of fundamental design principles before the system is implemented.

6.      Students will apply established techniques to verify and validate the software system requirements.

 

Course Description:

 

This major project course is a follow-up to SWE CS 4624. Emphasis is placed on completing the entire software engineering life cycle in team projects. Topics include software development, testing, implementation, and user manuals. Software engineering methodologies and some formal methods are covered. Software CASE tools are utilized in the projects from planning and analysis through implementation

 

Course Outcomes

At the end of the course, the student should be able to

1.      apply software engineering techniques and processes covering the entire software development life cycle to real-world project.

2.      use current tools to effectively analyze, design, implement, test, document, and deliver a complete software system.

3.      apply established techniques to verify and validate software system artifacts.
