1 General information CSE 230 : Introduction to Software Engineering
Instructor : Swapna S. Gokhale Phone : Office : ITEB 237 Lecture time : Mon/Fri 11:00am – 12:15 pm Office hours : By appointment (I will hang around for a few minutes at the end of each class). Web page : (Lecture notes, project, and general announcements will be posted on the web page) TA : Derek Doran Office hours : The TA will announce his office hours.

2 Course goals Appreciation and motivation for the study of software engineering Software qualities and software engineering principles Software design techniques Traditional and object-oriented design. Software specification techniques Software verification techniques Software production process Management of software engineering Software engineering tools and environments Software architecture Design patterns Introduction to Java (though this is not a Java programming course) Communication skills, and cooperative effort via a team project.

3 Expected learning outcomes
Be able to reason about the qualities that a software system must possess Be able to describe traditional and object-oriented design. UML class diagrams for describing an OO design Demonstrate various software specification techniques UML use-case, activity, and state-chart diagrams Demonstrate software verification techniques Empirical testing and informal analysis techniques Be able to describe the software production process and various life cycle models Describe and apply the management process to a software project. Understand and be able to describe the importance of software engineering tools and environments Become familiar with various architectural styles and design patterns Develop communication skills and work effectively as a team

4 Textbooks Required text book:
1. Fundamentals of Software Engineering by Carlo Ghezzi, Mehdi Jazayeri, and Dino Mandrioli, Second Edition, Prentice Hall, NJ. Reference texts: 1. Software Engineering: A Practitioner’s Approach, By Roger S. Pressman 2. Budd book 3. The Mythical Man Month, By Fred P. Brooks 4. Any Java text book. 5. Papers may be handed out in the class. 6. Additional reference texts may be used from time to time, and will be announced in the class

5 Course topics Introduction Software qualities
Historical perspective, state of the practice, why software engineering, relationship of software engineering to computer science and other disciplines Software qualities Qualities of the software product and process Software engineering principles General principles to be followed in the development of a software product Software design Traditional and OO design concepts, notations for describing traditional and OO designs Software specification Various techniques used for specifying the behavior and properties of software

6 Course topics (contd..) Software verification
Execution and non-execution based verification techniques Verification of software qualities Software production process Phases in the software production, various life cycle models Management of software engineering Project planning, estimation and risk management Software engineering tools and environment Various tools to facilitate software engineering techniques Software architecture and design patterns Introduction to software architecture, software architectural styles and design patterns

7 Grading system Midterm #1, #2, #3: 45% Final : 30% Project : 25%
(Several parts)

8 Project The purpose of the project is to:
Introduce you to various aspects of software engineering, namely, requirements, design, implementation, and verification. Enhance your communication skills, and your capability to cooperate and work as a part of a team. Points will be allocated for documentation, requirements, and test plans in addition to demonstrating that your program works. Projects will be carried out in teams of two. Please select your team member and let the TA know within the next couple of weeks. Your team member should be from the same lab section.

12 Grading policy Refer to the University policy regarding Student Conduct (Plagiarism, etc.) Grading of project/exams is handled by the TA, if you cannot resolve a problem with the TA, see me. Submit the lab assignments directly to the TA. Late submissions are penalized by a loss of 33% per day late (so 3 days late is as late as you can get). If you have any conflict with the exam date, please see me in advance for an alternative arrangement. Project grading: At the end of the semester, each one of you will be asked to provide feedback about your team member Your final project grade will take into consideration, the feedback provided by your team member.

13 Attendance policy Attendance not mandatory. Attending classes helps!
Case studies in the class Everything not in the lecture notes

14 Labs Labs will be handled by the TA
Java will be introduced in the labs. Please feel free to discuss any Java related issues with the TA or me I request you to attend the lab, as the project will be introduced on a part by part basis in the lab.

15 Feedback Please provide informal feedback early and often, before the formal review process.
