Advanced Software Development Methodologies
This course is designed as a continuation of RSEG 120 Software Development Methodologies. This course will continue to explore software engineering through the remaining project processes – Architecture, Design, Testing, and Maintenance. This course will provide both theoretical discussion of the need for the various process components, but will also provide information useful in deciding when a particular is necessary or when it is excessive for a particular project. The course will cover the processes in the context of both waterfall and iterative development models.
