Possible Study achievement

  • Verification of study performance: proof of successful participation in the exercise classes (ungraded)
  • Details of the examination (type, duration, criteria) will be announced at the beginning of the course.


Students learn basic modeling techniques about the software life cycle. The focus is on engineering techniques, such as UML modeling for object-oriented procedures and functionally decomposing models in analysis and design.
  • UML modeling in analysis and design (class and object diagrams, communication and sequence diagrams and others)
  • Functional decomposing models (Structured Analysis, Real Time Analysis, Structured Design)
  • Modeling of non-functional properties
  • Virtualization on the basis of models
  • Traditional process models of software development (waterfall, V-model, prototypes, evolutionary, incremental and concurrent models)
  • Project management models (network plan, Gantt chart, effort calculations)
  • Models in quality assurance (especially model-based testing)
