To construct a software system, requirements must be analysed and modelled, and designs developed and evaluated; this subject teaches knowledge and skills needed for these tasks. This includes the development of static and dynamic models for aspects of both the problem space and the solution space. The emphasis here is on an Agile approach, and on techniques appropriate for object-oriented development.
Topics covered include:
- Analysis and modelling requirements
- Developing, modelling and evaluating designs
- Modelling using the Unified Modelling Language (UML)
- Software design processes and principles
- Common design patterns and software architectures
- Tools for design and development
Intended learning outcomes
INTENDED LEARNING OUTCOMES (ILO)
On completion of this subject the student is expected to be able to:
Knowledge for Solving Computing Problems, Design/Development of Solutions
Design/Development of Solutions, Individual and Team Work, Communication
- Design/Development of Solutions, Communication, Life-long Learning
- Tools, Life-long Learning
On completion of this subject students should have developed the following generic skills
- Ability to undertake problem identification, formulation and solution

Core participation requirements
The University of Melbourne is committed to providing students with reasonable adjustments to assessment and participation under the Disability Standards for Education (2005), and the Assessment and Results Policy (MPF1326). Students are expected to meet the core participation requirements for their course. These can be viewed under Entry and Participation Requirements for the course outlines in the Handbook.
Further details on how to seek academic adjustments can be found on the Student Equity and Disability Support website: http://services.unimelb.edu.au/student-equity/home
Project work covering activities such as the analysis, design and implementation of small to medium-sized applications, comprising: completion of workshop-based exercises related to project; 2 small-team based projects requiring approximately 50-55 hours of work per student.
Workshops exercises ongoing through semester, projects due around weeks 7 and 11. 40% (20/40 hurdle to pass the subject). Addresses Intended Learning Outcomes (ILOs) 1 - 4.
One written 2 hour closed-book examination. 60% End-of-semester.
ILOs 1 to 4 are assessed in the examination. The examination is a hurdle and must be passed to pass the subject.
Intended Learning Outcomes (ILOs) 1, 2 and 3 are addressed in the lectures, workshop exercises, project assignments and the end-of-semester examination. ILO 4 is addressed in the workshop exercises and project assignment

LEARNING AND TEACHING METHODS
The subject comprises two one lectures and one two hour workshop each week. Weekly readings are assigned from the textbook. The subject also includes a design/implementation project, which involves analysis, design, implementation and delivery.
INDICATIVE KEY LEARNING RESOURCES
At the beginning of the year, the coordinator will propose a textbook that will be made available through University Book Shop and library. The current suggested textbook is Christopher Fox: Introduction to Software Engineering Design, Processes, Principles, and Patterns with UML2. Additional learning material will be made available on the learning management system (LMS) site for the subject.
CAREERS / INDUSTRY LINKS
