COMP 2005: Software Engineering
This course is required for all computer science MAJ majors.
It helps students build an understanding of how to develop a software system from scratch by guiding them through the development process and giving them the fundamental principles of systems development with object oriented technology.
|ⓘ||This course involves a substantial group project, and participation is compulsory.|
Prerequisites: COMP 2001
Availability: This course is usually offered in Fall and Winter semesters.
The objective of this course is to create a software system from requirements capture, perform requirements capture with use case analysis, create an object-oriented domain analysis model from the use cases, transform the domain model into software classes and apply design patterns in selecting and creating the software.
- Individual Assignment 5%
- Group Project (over several iterations) 45%
- In-class Exams (2) 50%
