Learning Outcomes

The student becomes familiar with software engineering and the concepts related with project command. (S)he will also learn how to participate in software engineering projects. The course yields theoretical background of software engineering, and offers a possibility to apply one's knowledge on a project during the course. The student learns the development methods for software engineering, learns the necessary technologies needed in writing a project plan. (S)he also learns how to make a requirement list and modelling, using the UML (Unified Modelling Language) technique. The student will also learn to design and test a software, and learns to control the documentation and quality of a given project.

Student's Workload

The total amount of student's work is 135 h, which contains 70 h of contact studies in the youth program and 50 h of contact studies in the adult program. The remaining time is used for individual studies.

Prerequisites / Recommended Optional Courses

Java Sever Programming, Data Bases.


Concepts and development methods of software engineering, project plan, definition and modelling of requirements, UML, software desing, implementation and testing, control of quality and documentation.

Recommended or Required Reading
