Trefnydd: Dr David Edward Perkins
This module aims to:
- Introduce the theoretical underpinnings of the Software Engineering discipline.
- Expose students to core concepts, providing the framework to overlay on current industrial practice.
- Provide practical direction on the usee of enterprise-level tools for software engineering
- Provide theoretical support to project management, professionalism, and process choices by showing how and why those choices are made.
Indicative content includes:
- Complementary views of the Software Development Lifecycle, such as Waterfall, Double-Diamond, Agile, SCRUM.
- Methods of generating and managing the, often complex, list of requirements for any sizable software engineering project.
- ‘Full-stack’ developers, specialist developers, DevOps, Operations, and their roles in developing and maintaining software systems.
- Source Code Management (SCM) concepts, objects, and processes. Comparing and contrasting the centralised and de-centralised models of SCM tools.
- Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Delivery (CD) forms of the development process and how these are supported by other parts of the lifecycle, other tools and processes.
- Traditional and semantic versions practices, demonstrating the strengths and weaknesses of each.
- Strong quality control in software engineering, the practice of managing quality records and the surrounding issues.
- Traditional application environments, enterprise environments, cloud environments and their impact on software engineering.
- Release strategies and processes and their consequences on quality, customers, and the product.
Equivalent to 40%. Uses key areas of theory or knowledge to meet the Learning Outcomes of the module. Is able to formulate an appropriate solution to accurately solve tasks and questions. Can identify individual aspects, but lacks an awareness of links between them and the wider contexts. Outputs can be understood, but lack structure and/or coherence.
Equivalent to the range 60%-69%. Is able to analyse a task or problem to decide which aspects of theory and knowledge to apply. Solutions are of a workable quality, demonstrating understanding of underlying principles. Major themes can be linked appropriately but may not be able to extend this to individual aspects. Outputs are readily understood, with an appropriate structure but may lack sophistication.
Equivalent to the range 70%+. Assemble critically evaluated, relevent areas of knowledge and theory to constuct professional-level solutions to tasks and questions presented. Is able to cross-link themes and aspects to draw considered conclusions. Presents outputs in a cohesive, accurate, and efficient manner.
