Subject fundamentals
The course is taught in Italian.
This course presents the basic notions of software engineering and the major disciplines it is made up of. Particular attention is devoted to the formalization of software requirements through the use of UML models for the structural aspects and of extended Petri nets for the behavioral ones.
Expected learning outcomes
Students will learn the major notions, products and activities associated with software engineering.
The skills to be acquired include the ability to formalize the requirements of a software system by means of structural and behavioral models and the ability to solve simple problems related to the various disciplines of the software process.
Prerequisites / Assumed knowledge
Basic knowledge of object-oriented programming and relational databases is a prerequisite.
