Theory Lectures and Seminars

The lectures are divided into five different knowledge areas presented in the course:
  • Requirements (week 36)
  • Planning and Processes (week 37)
  • Design and Architecture (week 38)
  • Testing and Software Configuration Management (week 39)
  • Software Quality (week 40)

In each area, about three 45 minutes lectures are given to introduce fundamental concepts within the knowledge area. After the lectures in each area, the students can optionally solve an exercise relating to the area. Instructions and deadlines can be found on the exercise page. Then at the next week's lecture the first part (about 30 min) will consist of a large seminar where the solutions of the exercises will be discussed and further examples within the subject will be given. Then, the second part of the lecture will introduce a new subject for the next block etc.

The lectures summarize the most important aspects of software engineering principles. However, these lectures do not cover the whole course, so the student is expected to read the course literature throughly during the course. Conversely, there are also areas presented at the lectures that are not described in the course book or additional material.

Full sets of slides will be published on this page directly after that a lecture is given. Before a lecture preliminary slides can be published lacking some solutions.

Guest Lectures

In addition to the lectures mentioned above, a number of guest lectures will be given by senior consultants and managers from the industry. These lectures will give a great opportunity to get an insight of problems from the real world. These lectures will be announced later during the course.
