CSC 510 introduces students to the discipline of developing useful and high-quality software-based systems. Students will be exposed to the techniques needed for the practice of effective software engineering as well as the skills required to succeed as a software professional.

See the Syllabus for details on classroom policies and evaluation.


By the end of the course, you should be able to accomplish the following objectives:

  • Implement software engineering practices in a team project.
  • Identify practices related to software process.
  • Decide how to test a system and measure coverage.
  • Compare and contrast design techniques and architectural patterns.
  • Measure the quality of software code.
  • Build tools for supporting software engineering tasks.
  • Evaluate evidence related to a software practice.
  • Identify configuration management practices for improving maintanance of software
  • Apply deployment practices and patterns.

Students are expected to gain practical exposure to tools, processes, and principles of software engineering through hands-on projects while understanding models and research ideas behind the tools and processes. Lectures will include workshop style learning experiences, where students get to work on a problemset and receive feedback from the instructor and other classmates.
