Softwaretechnik / Software Engineering (Lecture)

Software engineering is "the application of engineering to software" (IEEE 610.12). Goal of this course is to provide a broad overview over the challenges of software engineering and techniques and tools to address these challenges. We will discuss the main activities during software development (in particular project management, requirements engineering, design, testing, formal verification) with an emphasis on formal methods. We will study process models, software metrics, approaches to requirements specification and analysis, (formal) modeling and analysis techniques, design and architecture patterns, testing, and program verification.

News

  • 2017-09-13: exam results "vorläufig freigegeben" - exam review ("Klausureinsicht"): Thu, 21.9., 16:00 - 18:00, 052-0-020
    (please choose your visiting time randomly since we don't want to admit more than 3-5 people at a time to the room)
  • 2017-08-09: section "Permitted in the exam" updated - thanks for the reminders.
  • 2017-07-24: Annotated slides of Lecture 17 re-uploaded - things got mixed up.
  • 2017-07-24: Another update of the errata file - thanks for pointing out the issue!
  • 2017-07-06: Wajakla... :-/ In the confusion caused by the malfunctioning microphone, we have lost the audio track of  the second half of today's recording - as a substitute, you may consider to consult the English recordings from last year (Download (2016,EN), Stream (2016,EN)). The Multimedia Support promised to have the microphone replaced by Monday.
    For support with the Uppaal tool as needed for the exercises, please don't hesitate to contact your tutors.
  • 2017-06-22: The slides of Lecture 9 have been extended by correct versions of the LSC semantics tables (slides 16 and 18-20); the incorrect slides as presented in the lecture are still present to match the recording, but they are crossed out in red.  The links below now point to the fixed versions (same filename!).
  • 2017-06-22: Mistakes seldom come alone - the errata file has been updated.
  • 2017-06-20: Exercise Sheet 4 is (finally) available.
  • 2017-06-20: The first mistake has been spotted in the slides; the correction is provided in the errata file.
  • 2017-06-01: next tutorial is on Monday, 12.6., as an exception; room assignment is as follows:
    • Liridon: SR 00-014, Geb. 078 (as usual)
    • Kristin: SR 00-007, Geb. 106 (as usual)
    • Michael: HS 00-026, Geb. 101 (exception!)
    • Moritz:  Kinohörsaal              (as usual) 
  • 2017-05-15: Too bad - seems we've lost the recording of today's second half lecture. :-/  As a workaround, please consider the English recordings from last season; V-Model was in slightly different order, but overall content is the same.  Links will be in place.
  • 2017-05-03: Rooms for tutorials updated - there was an inconsistency between ILIAS and this page (ILIAS was right), thanks for the hint.
  • 2017-04-28: Complementary literature "Buschman et al.: Pattern-Oriented Software Architecture", now available as e-Book via UB.
  • 2017-03-21: homepage online

Formalia

Prerequisites for admission to the final exam, form of the final exam, and everything will be announced in the first lecture.

Admission criteria

50% of the total (= 120) admission (or: good will) points in the exercises are sufficient for exam admission.

Exercise Submission Scheme

The exercise sheets are online early in order to allow you to be aware of the tasks while following the lecture. There will be an early/regular submission scheme following a pattern to be announced.  Please submit your solutions via ILIAS (log in with RZ account, not TF Pool account).

Note: The exercises will be rated on two scales: admission points (given your knowledge before the tutorial, how sensible is your proposal; "good will rating", "upper bound") and exam points (given the additional knowledge from the comments on your proposal and the tutorial, how many points would your proposal at least be worth in a written exam; "evil rating", "lower bound").

Exam

There will be a written exam:

  • Date & time: Friday, 8.9.2017
  • 90 min. starting at 14:00 c.t.
  • Room: 101-00-26 and -36 (and maybe Kinohörsaal)
  • Permitted in the exam:
    max. 1 sheet of paper, max. size A4, max. 200g/qm qualiy, all sides may be used (written/printed/painted/...).

Note: The module result (grade, "Note") is completely determined by the exam.

Resources

Slides, Exercises, and Recordings

Note: the following plan is tentative, that is, the assignment of topics to dates may be subject to mild changes.  The assignment of form (lecture or tutorial) to dates is fixed.  We will try to provide slides before the lecture.
