Introduction to Software Engineering 2

Course code SENG6120Units 10Level 6000Faculty of Engineering and Built EnvironmentSchool of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

Expands the problem-solving techniques of SENG6110 to large problems, with an in-depth study of an object-oriented software analysis and design methodology. Software implementation techniques and standards are introduced with the aim of improving programming skills. Students use fundamental algorithmic techniques and structures such as stacks, queues, trees and heaps as tools for problem solving design and implementation.
