Course Syllabus


The course is taught to the students of the Master’s Program «System and Software Engineering (SSE) » at Faculty of Computer Science of the National Research University - Higher School of Economics. It is a double module course, which is delivered in the first and second modules of the first academic year. Number of credits is 4. Total course length is 152 academic hours including 56 auditory hours (22 Lecture (L) hours and 34 Seminar (S) hours) and 96 Self-study (SS) hours. Academic control includes in-class tasks, a homework, a control work, and exam at the end of second module. The course ‘Software engineering methodology’ presents the engineering discipline which is concerned with all aspects of software production from the early stages of system specification through to maintaining the system after it has gone into use. The main objective of the training course is to examine and discuss with students fundamentals and principles of Software Engineering (SE), get familiar with common methods and standards of SE, development and evolution of complex multiversion and replicated software solutions. The course is aimed to help students to develop skills that will enable them to construct software of high quality, reliable, and that is reasonably easy to understand, modify and maintain.
