The course focuses on the engineering and development of real-world software products. It provides a pragmatic introduction into the fundamentals of software engineering. Basics of software project management are presented and are practiced in the term project.
Students who complete this course will be able to:
We will meet every Thursday until August 8. The meeting times will primarily be used for class discussions as well as project discussions. To prepare for class discussions, the lecture materials will be uploaded and students will be expected to read them before the next meeting. Expect to spend at least 2 hours per week doing the online readings and exercises.
Students taking the class as CSCI8836 will also be required to submit a 7-10 page, graduate-level research paper. (Please make an appointment to see me within the first two weeks of class to discuss appropriate topics.)
The term project is discussed in the Project Guidelines page.
Exercises will provide hands-on practice on the mechanics of developing software using modern technology.
Late homeworks will get a 10% deduction per day, for each day past the due date.
Cheating will not be tolerated for project assignments, exams and other assignments. For formal policies about cheating and plagiarism, consult the UNO Student Policies and Department of Computer Science Policies and Procedures.
