Softwaretechnik I
Skills to be acquired in this module
The objective of the module inf006 Software Engineering II is to deepen the subjects and skills of the module Software Engineering I. Special software engineering topics will be presented, deepened and discussed. The lecture deals with different software engineering methods and technology which will be discussed in the seminar. The discussions are contextualised by scientific research projects, practical projects and latest research findings.

Professional competence
The students:
  • deepen software engineering methods and techniques
  • use specific software engineering methods and techniques
  • differentiate developmental techniques of software systems
  • discuss software engineering topics
  • design software systems by using appropriate methods
  • solve software engineering problems independently
  • reflect self-designed software engineering solutions critically and present them appropriately

Methodological competence
The Students:
  • structure problems with modelling techniques
  • develop actual methods of software engineering
  • present software engineering solutions
  • write scientific papers independently

Social competence
The Students:
  • explain and discuss software development solutions in their practical use
  • accept criticism and see it as an asset

The Students:
  • reflect their problem-solving behaviour with regard to the possibilities of software technology
  • internalize the presented developmental methods and integrate them in their own actions
