Course Description
Software Engineering immerses the student in the process of software engineering, which involves identifying the components of a software system, breaking complex components into smaller and more manageable abstract pieces, and modeling the entire system. These tasks help software teams better handle the design, planning, and development of software systems. In this course the student will be exposed to a variety of techniques for planning and modeling along with strategies for gathering user input and for executing software development.

Learning Outcomes
Through the Portfolio Assessment process, students will demonstrate that they can appropriately address the following outcomes:

  • Explain what is encompassed by the term software engineering.
  • Describe software engineering process layers and apply the process framework to software development.
  • Analyze the similarities and differences between the various process models.
  • Discuss agile development principles.
  • Discuss requirements modeling and essential design concepts.
  • Discuss the significance of object-oriented programming and its application to software engineering.
  • Explain the importance of the user interface design and analyze the major design issues involved.

Course Description
Students will be able to construct a set of working drawings demonstrating the utilization of basic design procedures in the modification of existing parts of members to meet new design criteria. In addition, through the preparation of drawing plates, they will demonstrate their competency in catalog design, statistical graphics, basic descriptive geometry and elementary cam and gear design.

Learning Outcomes
Through the Portfolio Assessment process, students will demonstrate that they can appropriately address the following outcomes:

  • Explain the purpose of gears and describe the type of gears you have used in engineering design.
  • Discuss the operation of a cam. Include in your discussion cam terms, cam motion and cam followers.
  • Explain the type of cam you have used in engineering design.
  • Demonstrate an engineering drawing assignment or project i.e., plumping/piping drawing, electrical drawing, mechanical (HVAC) drawing etc.
