Subject specific learning outcomes and competences

  • Students will know fundamentals of essential stages in information system development at a level, which is further evolved in specialized subjects.
  • They will be able to develop suitable models during information system requirements analysis and design, mainly in the UML language.

Generic learning outcomes and competences

Students will learn how to analyze a design solution of a given problem in a small team. They learn to present and defend  both partial and final results of the project.

Learning objectives

The goal of the subject is to give students knowledge of methods and tools used in information system development and to learn them to apply these methods and tools.

Why is the course taught

Requirement analysis of new or updated software and its subsequent design are important prerequisites for efficient software deployment and successful deployment, operation, and maintenance, whether it is the development of information systems, mobile applications, or embedded software for dedicated devices. Proper object design, knowledge of UML or agile approaches, advanced technologies for implementation or development (code management, CI/CD, etc.) are useful for every developer, designer, analyst, or system architect.

Prerequisite kwnowledge and skills

  • Basic knowledge of software engineering. 
  • Knowledge of the paradigms of and practical experience with object-oriented programming.

Syllabus - others, projects and individual work of students

  • Informal requirement specification of a given part of an information system being solved as the project.
  • Requirements specification and design of the of the system in UML.

Progress assessment

  • Mid-term written examination - 15 point
  • Evaluated project with the defense (four partial submissions) - 34 points
  • Final written examination - 51 points; The minimal number of points which can be obtained from the final exam is 20. Otherwise, no points will be assigned to the student.

Exam prerequisites

Duty credit consists of submitting and defending project results, and of obtaining at least 24 points for activities during semester.
