Courses

Design and development of large distributed software systems with use of COTS (Components Off The Shelf), development of custom code, and integration with legacy systems. Course includes study of software architectures, frameworks, and types of middleware. Architectural design patterns and issues encountered in design of distributed systems are covered in depth.

Software development processes and the management of software projects. Software lifecycle processes and process models are studied, including universal software development models, models of software evolution, process management, and process assessment and improvement. Also studied are the management of teams and people, software size and cost estimation, project scheduling, and risk management. The use of industry standards is emphasized throughout.

Use of DBMS software in the development of an information system. Overview of the ANSI/SPARC Study Group on Database Management Systems model. Relational database model techniques. Emphasis on user views necessary to support data management and retrieval.

Software development in the context of various paradigms. The strategies and methods of the procedural, object-oriented, and functional paradigms are studied and practiced. The modeling of software processes will be considered from both the process and product views, as will the appropriateness and measures of effectiveness of these processes in the design of software systems. Students will apply these measures to the course exercises, determining and reviewing the impact of these methods on individual design.
