Learning outcomes

MM: Teoria ed esercitazioni
The course introduces the basic scientific and professional notions of software engineering, addressing in particular the different phases of the software development process: planning, design, modeling and specification, implementation, testing and validation, evaluation, maintenance. The programming projects carried out in the lab complement the theory lectures with the design, documentation and realization of a software. At the end of the course, the student will have acquired all the basic knowledge related to software engineering and will be able to apply it in the design and implementation of software systems. He will also be able to interact with all the stakeholders, from the requirement elicitation to the software maintenance.
MM: Laboratorio
The aim of this module is to support the student during the planning, documentation, and implementation of a software application using the techniques introduces during the theory course.
