Software Engineering


Agile and Lean Development of Software-Intensive Products

The course aims to provide an understanding of the application of software development in an environment based on the philosophy of lean and agile working methods. It includes an understanding of industry-relevant technologies to promote the development of software products as well as an understanding that value is of the utmost importance within businesses and organizations. The focus of the course is thus on creating a better understanding of the relationship between values and the influence of principles on businesses and organizations to achieve the best application of agile working methods and Lean as a philosophy.    

Applied Cloud Computing and Big Data

The mobile and connected world of today generates a large amount of data that needs to be managed, analysed, and linked. This is often done on the cloud. The development, deployment, and management of this is called Cloud Computing. The purpose of this course is to offer a wide background about designing, developing, deploying, testing, and monitoring a cloud solution, specifically with a focus on big data problems.

Model-based development: Theory and practice (MBD-TP)

The aim of this course is to provide participants with the principles behind model-driven development of software systems and the application of such a methodology in practice. Modelling is an effective solution to reduce problem complexity and, as a consequence, to enhance time-to-market and properties of the final product.

Safety critical software

The purpose is to give the students an overview of issues and methods for development and assurance of safety-critical software, including details of selected technologies, methods and tools.

Statistical Analysis in Industrial Systems

In this course you will learn state-of-the-art statistical modelling for the purpose of analysing industrial data. The course also presents the basics of relational databases and data manipulation techniques needed to prepare the data for analysis.

Systems-of-Systems Engineering

This course makes you acquainted with the concept of systems-of-systems (SoS), which means that independent systems are collaborating. It gives you an understanding why SoS is an important topic in the current digitalisation and provides a theoretical and practical foundation for understanding important characteristics of SoS. It also gives you a deeper knowledge in a number of key concerns that need to be considered when engineering SoS. Admitted students to this course may join the course any time between August 30 and October 24, 2021. With the recommended study pace of 25%, the course would take approximate seven calendar weeks to complete. Higher or lower study pace is possible as long as the course is finished no later than January 16, 2022.

User Experience Design and Usability

The course aims to provide students an opportunity to develop skill in experience design and design thinking. The Usability and User Experience course focuses on the design process, techniques and methods to design and produce digital artifacts with desirable experiential qualities.
