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.

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: tba.
  • 90 min. starting at tba. c.t.
  • Room: tba.
  • 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.

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.
