Course aims
Today, software is becoming ever more complex, developed with very short time to market, and required to cope with changing requirements. This scenario calls for increased levels of flexibility and agility, both in the technologies used and the processes followed for engineering software. This MSc will provide a sound background on the methods and techniques that can meet these challenges. Hands-on modules based on the Eclipse framework will ensure that this knowledge is framed in practical contexts of usage.

Course modules
Each specialist course consists of six core modules and two option modules. For the MSc there is also a project. All courses include the core module ‘Personal and Group Skills’.

Core Modules
Domain Specific Languages
Generative Development

Teaching and assessment methods
Teaching is by a variety of methods including lectures, seminars, self-paced learning and practicals. Assessment of taught modules is by coursework and examination. Coursework consists of a mixture of computer-based practicals, essays and small group projects. The compulsory Personal and Group Skills module combines attendance of seminars, group discussions and collective essay writing on topics selected for the seminars, as well as attendance at a series of workshops on transferable skills and career planning. The project is assessed separately.
