SE490 Software Engineering Capstone Project I

This course is the first part of a two-semester senior-year capstone project. It is intended to complement the theory and to provide an in-depth, hands-on experience in all aspects of software engineering. The students will work in teams on projects of interest to IT sector and will be involved in analysis of requirements, architecture and design, implementation, testing and validation, project management, software process, software maintenance, and software re-engineering. In this part students give project plan, provide software requirement specification document and develop software high-level design.

SE443 Cloud Computing for Software Engineering

This course will leverages the World Wide Web to fulfill computing needs. It packages applications, computing power, and storage as a metered service similar to a utility. This model is designed to supplant the traditional mechanism of desktop computing in many cases. This course will cover the origin, theory, enabling technology, and hands-on labs for key concepts in cloud computing.

SE410 Software Architecture

The course gives students an understanding of the concept of software architecture and how this phase in the development between requirement specification and detailed design plays a central role for the success of a software system. The students will get knowledge of some well-known architecture patterns, and be able to design, construct and evaluate architectures for software systems. In addition, the students should get some understanding of how the developers’ experiences and the technical and organizational environment will influence on the choice of architecture.
