Objectives of Programme's Learning Outcomes

  • Have acquired highly specialised and integrated knowledge and broad skills in the various disciplines of computer science, which come after those within the Bachelor's in computer science.
  • Manage large-scale software development projects.
    • Apply, mobilise, articulate and promote the knowledge and skills acquired in order to help lead and complete a project.
  • Manage research, development and innovation.
    • Understand unprecedented problems in computer science and its applications.

Learning Outcomes of UE

This course introduces the principles of model-driven object-oriented software development. At the end of the course, the student should:
- understand the importance, needs and specificities of software engineering activities (such as requirements analysis, design, implementation and testing);
- understand the importance and principles of software modeling, model simulation, model execution and code generation;
- use the UML modeling language for analysing and designing software systems;
- use advanced object-oriented software development concepts such as design patterns;
- understand the importance of software testing, and be able to use unit testing in practice. 

Content of UE

The UE is composed of two learning activities (see details in the ECTS sheets of each learning activity).

The first learning activity focuses on the aspects of object-oriented software modelling using the UML modelling language. The following visual notations (diagrams) will be studied in theory and put into practice: use case diagrams and semi-structured usage scenarios, class diagrams, sequence diagrams, interaction diagrams, behavioural state diagrams. If time permits, more advanced software modeling techniques will be studied, such as metamodeling, model simulation and executable modeling.

The second learning activity focuses on advanced aspects of model-driven object-oriented development, using a recent version of the Java programming language. This activity will address the generation of object-oriented source code from models, synchronisation between code and models, design patterns, and software testing (e.g. unit testing, mock testing, behaviour-driven testing).

Prior Experience

The student should have a good prior knowledge of the object-oriented programming paradigm, as well as practical programming experience with the Java programming language.

Type of Assessment for UE in Q1

  • Written examination
  • Practical test
  • Graded tests

Method of calculating the overall mark for the Q1 UE assessment

The overall grade for the EU will be calculated as the weighted average of the two learning activities, each counting for 50% of the overall grade. However, an absence mark for one of the two learning activities will automatically correspond to an absence mark for the whole course!

Q1 UE Assessment Comments

Not applicable

Type of Assessment for UE in Q3

  • Written examination
  • Practical Test

Method of calculating the overall mark for the Q3 UE assessment

The overall grade for the EU will be calculated as the weighted average of the two learning activities, each counting for 50% of the overall grade. However, an absence mark for one of the two learning activities will automatically correspond to an absence mark for the whole course!
