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

  • 2018-09-21: for the exam review times, let's say: please arrive at 17:30 the latest - we want to close the shop at 18:00 s.t.
  • 2018-09-12: exam review ('Klausureinsicht') on Friday, 2018-09-28, 14:00 - 18:00 (see procedure below)
  • 2018-07-26: Another error was spotted - the errata file has been updated accordingly, thanks for the hint.
  • 2018-07-16: and another error was spotted - the errata file has been updated accordingly
  • 2018-07-09: the full Exercise Sheet 6 is now available
  • 2018-07-05: the first part (black-box testing) of Exercise Sheet 6 is already available for those who want to start early; the remaining tasks will be added on the coming Monday (as usual)
  • 2018-07-01: aha, the first errors have been spotted - please consider the errata file for the correction; thanks for reporting the issue.
  • 2018-06-04: everybody who is studying from other sources (like the German recording from last seasons): the exam will (of course) be based on the slides below, in particular on the "2018 edition" of LSC theory
  • 2018-05-18: the exam has got a date and time, rooms will be announced when they have been assigned
  • 2018-05-16: oops, somebody forgot to upload the last recordings - here they are, thanks for the hint.
  • 2018-04-20: ILIAS groups assigned

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: 13.9.2018, 14:00
  • 90 min., starting at 14:00 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.
 
Exam review (Klausureinsicht): Friday, 2018-09-28, 14:00 - 18:00, room 52-0-020;
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 Friday is 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.

Slides, Exercises, and Recordings
