Software engineering is the discipline of engineering large software systems. The module concerns itself with the methods, techniques, and tools for the development, operations, and maintenance of software und combines practical content with the theoretic foundations of software development. Modern technical solutions and design patterns will be presented and discussed. The topics will be covered systematically and in relation to the underlaying theoretical and mathematical principles.

The module consists of a lecture and of additional exercises in groups. The concepts introduced in the lecture are trained in the exercises by means of practical applications. Particular software development tasks are solved with systematic methods.

Qualification Aims

The students shall get an overview of the most important procedures, methods and techniques for the systematic development of software systems. They should be able to propose approaches for solving practical software development problems and to implement them in a systematic way.
