(ENGR) Software Development Methods

3 Credits | 300 Level | 45 Contact hours


Modern Software Development Using Java, Second Edition by Paul Tymann and G. Michael Schneider. This text is freely available online at http://www.cs.rit.edu/~ptt/msd/.


A continuation of CS 1110, emphasizing modern software development methods. An introduction to the software development life cycle and processes. Topics include requirements analysis, specification, design, implementation, and verification. Emphasizes the role of the individual programmer in large software development projects.


Engineering in all fields is progressing at a rapid rate; the ability to design and create software systems is increasingly important. The practices of software engineering (including team management, design, testing, and documentation) are useful in all large-scale development processes whether or not they include computing.
In this course, there are four main goals:
(a) to increase your skill as a programmer;
(b) expand on your experience with the art of computer science;
(c) to introduce you to how software systems are designed, implemented, tested, and maintained; and
(d) to provide practical experience in software engineering.
