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.
