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) modelling and analysis techniques, design and architecture patterns, testing, and program verification.

News

  • 2019-09-26: exam review: 2nd and 16th of October - see ILIAS forum post.
  • 2019-04-18: ILIAS module online, join here: ILIAS-Admission.
  • 2019-04-04: 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 0-3 and 4-6 (that is, 50% in the first half and 50% in the second half) 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: Tuesday, September, 17th 2019, 10:00.
  • 90 min.
  • Room: 101-0-26 / -36 / -10 / -14 - please gather in the foyer in time
  • Permitted in the exam:
    max. 1 sheet of paper, max. size A4, max. 200g/qm quality, all sides may be used (written/printed/painted/...).

Note: The module result (grade, "Note") is completely determined by the exam.
 
Exam review (Klausureinsicht): Wed, 2nd October, 2019 and Wed, 16th October, 2019 - see ILIAS forum post
(We will admit max. 3 people in the room at the same time, so please choose your review time randomly and just come by.  Hence if everybody arrives at 14:00, people may queue up - trusting in the power of stochastics, a random choice should yield acceptable average waiting times for all. ;-)  If said dates are not possible for you, let us know as early as possible (including your options/wishes) - then we'll see whether we can find one or the other alternative appointment which is convenient for all of us.)

Resources

Slides, Exercises, and Recordings
