Its wholesome objective is that the
Information Technology programme is to produce graduates who are part of the
solution. Hence knowledge presented in this course unit enable the students to
deliver ready for use systems or applications. IT instigates into the learners
a critical perception of problems that compels to do nothing less butt engineer
solutions that work. Thus, this majorly practical unit is very relevant to systems
analysts, systems designers and software developers.
This course introduces students to the
fundamentals of contemporary software engineering. An overview of the agile and
non-agile software engineering principles, methods, tools and techniques is
presented. Current trends and challenges in the practice of software
engineering are explored. Students apply contemporary agile requirements
analysis, planning, architecture, design, implementation and testing practices
to software engineering project work in small teams.
The course has been designed to:
students to the software Development process and the core activities at various
levels of development
students on requirements analysis of a simple software system
students manage a team of software developers
students to software documentation
students to Validation, Verification and testing a software Product.
By the end of the course, students should be
