This course is the first of a two-course sequence of a design project (DP I and DP II). Focusing on software engineering, the course introduces techniques to specify, design, test and document medium and large software systems. Design techniques include information engineering, object orientation and complexity measures. Also covered are testing methods, such as path testing, exhaustive test models and construction of test data. An introduction to software tools and project management techniques is presented. Student projects involve team software development and tracking.
Prerequisites: CS 2134(C- or better), CS 3224 and senior status.
