The CS3024 module tackles the technical, the organisational, and the wider professional aspects of large software systems analysis, design, and development, as well as other issues relating to software development, including software quality assurance and testing.The practical component allows students to apply the knowledge gained during the various 'teaching' sessions (lectures, discussions, orienteering, Q&A) as a member of a software project team. While the core emphasis of the module is on the principles of Software Engineering and, even more importantly, on Software Engineering practice, a range of relevant professional topics are explicitly focused on.
|Session||First Sub Session||Credit Points||30 credits (15 ECTS credits)|
Information on contact teaching time is available from the course guide.
1st Attempt: 1 two-hour written examination (25%) and two software engineering project deliverables (20% and 40% respectively, 60% in total, one individual in-course assessment on professional topics consisting of 4,000 word essay/report (15%)).
Resit: Students must resit the component(s) they have failed. (written examination and/or individual in-course assessment on professional topics). Students who have failed the combined software engineering project deliverables component need to repeat the course the following year.

During lectures, the Personal Response System and/or other ways of student interaction will be used for formative assessment. Additionally, practical sessions will provide students with practice opportunities and formative assessment.
