Course Overview

Course in a Nutshell

Software engineering is far more than programming.  It is a broad discipline that encompasses many important concepts and techniques.

This, the first of our two courses on software engineering, provides an introduction to the objectives, principles, and methodologies of software engineering.  Upon the completion of this course, you will have an understanding of the entire software lifecycle from conception to development to maintenance.


Customize It!

  • Are you a project manager, analyst, programmer, testing/debugging, or integration specialist and need a better understanding of how your work fits into the software lifecycle?  We can emphasize the phases relevant to your particular needs while also trying to give you a broad understanding of the full lifecycle.
  • Are you interested in particular techniques of software development?  If so, we can emphasize those parts of this course that focus on the areas and tools pertinent to your project or product.
  • Are you involved in the marketing, sales, or post-sales support of software and need a better understanding of how your job fits into the overall software lifecycle?  We can customize the course to focus on those issues.


Learn How To

Describe and apply the key concepts and techniques for:

  • Software engineering principles and objectives
  • The end-to-end software lifecycle
  • Software inception.
  • Requirements elicitation and definition.
  • Design and analysis.
  • Prototyping and user interfaces.
  • Coding and testing.
  • Deployment and maintenance.


Audience / Prerequisites

Aimed At

Individuals involved in software development who need a broad understanding of the entire software development lifecycle, guiding principles, and techniques.



While there are no specific prerequisites, exposure to software development and/or project management will be very helpful.
