The goal Introducing students to the basic concepts of software engineering. The course deals with various aspects of the software life cycle: specification, design, implementation, testing, maintenance, and basic elements of project management. Students are involved in a practical team project.
The outcome It is expected that the student upon passing this course, be able to: Demonstrate understanding, critical analysis, and application of existing theories, models, and techniques in the field of software engineering. To gain a sense of teamwork. To learn to work with modern tools that are actively used in the software industry during the development process.
