Seminar / Proseminar (Advanced) Topics in Requirements Engineering

Ziel der Veranstaltung ist, die Teilnehmer in die wissenschaftliche Arbeitsweise beim Erstellen von Texten und Vorträgen einzuführen. Gleichzeitig soll ein Grundverständnis des Themengebiets "Anforderungsanalyse in der Softwaretechnik" erarbeitet werden. Dieses umfasst alle Aufgaben, die dazu dienen, die Ziele, Bedürfnisse und Voraussetzungen für die Entwicklung eines Softwareprodukts zu bestimmen (vgl. auch "Requirements Engineering").

Course type Seminar / Proseminar

Advanced Topics in Requirements Engineering (Seminar)

Description

Seminar

We aim to deepen the basis knowledge of requirements engineering by exploring recent research papers. By searching and summarizing publications related to the subject, students are encouraged to interact with state-of-the-art requirements engineering techniques and to get acquainted with actual open research questions.
