Description This module will introduce engineering students to the emerging field of multidisciplinary system and software engineering. Students will attain knowledge of the following skills:
  • Identify Requirements Needs (Functional, Performance, and Quality)
  • Create systems/software architectures that integrate together.
  • Define rules and Performance for external and internal interfaces
  • Define non-functional requirements
  • Define and execute overall system verification and validation
  • Manage system changes
  • Manage system risks
  • Manage system/software processes
  • Perform systems vs. software trade-offs.
  • Develop/Derive/Allocate Detailed Low-Level Requirements
  • Define formal coding methods
  • Define Software Processes, Methodologies and Tools
  • Define Reuse vs New Development Tradeoff criteria
  • Customer Interfaces
  • Defining Software Quality Attributes
  • Determine coding Methodology
  • Define Software Verification and Validation Methodology
  • Software Engineering Management
  • Application of Computational Analysis and Thinking .
Learning Outcomes By the end of the module students should be able to:
  • Select and apply a range of multidisciplinary systems and software engineering processes to produce requirements and architectures for products and systems.
  • Demonstrate competences in design abstraction employing standardised viewpoints, and implementation methods employing programming languages that support rapid prototyping.
  • Evaluate and improve systems by methodological application of verification and validation techniques.
