Advanced Software Engineering
This course focuses on the methodologies and technologies that address the challenges that companies are facing for competing in the volatile markets of today. It looks at how to generate applications from high-level business models to reduce time-to-market and development costs and how to evolve legacy systems and promote business processes in an economy dominated by the need to offer and integrate, on demand, new services.
Normally at least a good 2nd Class Honours BSc degree or qualification of equivalent standard recognised by the University in a subject with a substantial element of computing. Applications are treated on an individual basis, however, and so alternative qualifications may be considered, especially in the case of candidates with relevant work experience.
Core modules: Advanced system design; service orientated architectures; generative development; software process engineering; system re-engineering; plus 2 options chosen from; applied numerical mathematics; communication and concurrency; compression methods for multimedia; financial mathematics 1; formal software specification; operations research; programming secure and distributed systems; semantics of programming languages; software measurement and quality assurance; wavelets and signal processing; web technologies; individual project.
Assessment of taught modules is by coursework and examination. Coursework consists of a mixture of computer-based practicals, essays and small group projects. The compulsory personal and group skills module combines attendance of seminars, group discussions and collective essay writing on topics selected for the seminars, as well as attendance at a series of workshops on transferable skills and career planning.
