Skills to be acquired in this module
The objective of the module "Requirements Engineering and Management" is to convey the core concepts and technology of the requirements engineering and of the requirements management. In the second half of the semester these methods and techniques will be carried out practically to develop an exemplary requirements definition.

Professional competence
The students:
  • integrate the process of requirements engineering in the software engineering process
  • name the methods and tools of requirements engineering and management
  • select methods and tools from requirements engineering and management to solve given problems appropriately
  • illustrate the key tasks of the requirements engineering and management
  • name the essential concepts to develop and to structure ideas
  • discuss the methods of determination requirements and develop validation concepts
  • differentiate the software development core activities in greater detail

Methodological competence
The students:
  • apply the methods of determination, documentation,validation and confirmation of requirements and
  • create a comprehensive requirement document in group work

Social competence
The students:
  • communicate with all stakeholders dealing with software development
  • design project visions in groups
  • collect requirements in interviews
  • design requirements for software systems collaboratively

Self-competence
The students:
-reflect their problem-solving behaviour by applying requirements engineering and management capabilities
Module contents
The module deals with requirements analysis core concepts as well as methods and techniques of requirements engineering and management. Topics of this module are:
