Course Objectives The objective of this course is to give an understanding of the basics of information systems development.
Course Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Describe the approach and obligations of the professional systems analyst and the analogies between software and other branches of engineering. Discuss the aims and objectives of an information system in the context of a human activity system. Appreciate the software life cycle, and the management issues involved in software development. Recognize the need for quality assurance and know, how it is applied in the software industry with engineering standards. Use object-oriented analysis and design techniques to document existing information systems, to propose alternative new systems, and to specify required information systems. Apply analysis, design techniques and implementation methods to meet the special needs of the systems. Produce the key deliverables of the software life cycle
Course Content Introduction to software architecture; design patterns; object-oriented modeling and architectural design with contemporary notation; experimentation in design; design prototyping; working on design teams and management of object-oriented projects; detailed design and implementation issues; design reviews; using design document for coding.
