Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Learning objectives


The student should gain knowledge of leading paradigms (e.g. traditional and agile) in professional development  of software. The student should also gain knowledge of theories, methods and techniques involved in these paradigms (e.g. process modelling, management of requirements, design, project management, testing, process improvement) as well as an overview of theory of science for software engineering.


  • the ability to explain course concepts precisely using the terminology of the discipline, and be able to distinguish between and compare the software engineering paradigms
  • Be able to explain accurately and using the terminology of the discipline, the theories, methods and techniques of software engineering paradigms and their application in the professional development of software intensive systems


  • be able to select, justify and use appropriate paradigms, theories, methods and techniques in their own development contexts.

Type of instruction

The teaching is organized according to the general teaching methods for the education, cf. chapter 3
