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 are 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.
