What you studied in System Analysis course constitutes part of software engineering. Software Engineering is a broader subject. To be a software engineer, you must master several skills, one of which is analysis and design. Q: What was covered in System Analysis course? SW engineering vs. Systems Analysis
The Course • We will learn how to develop quality software. • Focus will be on overall software development process. • Introducing stages in software development. • Understanding the requirements for each phase. • Describing the deliverables for each phase. • Documentation and quality assurance
Course Syllabus • Introduction to software engineering • Software Process Models • Project Management • Requirements Elicitation and Analysis • Software Design • Validation and Verification • Software Testing • Software Evolution • Software Configuration Management • Software Quality Management
The Course Objectives Develop learners’ SW engineering skills such as: Requirements elicitation Architectural design SW Testing SW evolution Project management
The Saudi Job Market IT graduate job opportunity as a software engineer include: Solution developer Project manager SW Analyst SW designer Programmer SW Tester SW Quality manager
Methods To introduce the theory and basic concepts Lectures (Active Learning) Assignments (individual/Group) Tutorials (workshops/discussion sessions) Case studies Class group activities and competitions Guest Speakers
Assessment Assessment is more than grades:To many, the word "assessment" simply means the process by which we assign students grades. Assessment however is a mechanism for • providing me with data for improving my teaching methods, and • guiding and motivating students to be actively involved in their own learning. As such, assessment provides important feedback to both instructors and students.
Project • What is your area of interest? • Project work on parallel to lectures • Divided into Teams.
Why Team? • Helps weaker students by providing a resource • Helps average students by exposing to more viewpoints • helps stronger students by allowing them an opportunity to teach and really learn • And other benefits, like making new friends.
