Welcome to 3240! You should consider this class an "introduction to the profession of being a software engineer." We know you know how to code. But how well do you code? How well do you work with a team to build larger projects? How do you use modern tools to collaborate? How do you mitigate the risk of failure? That's Software Engineering.
Course Description: Analyzes modern software engineering practice for multi-person projects; methods for requirements specification, design, implementation, verification, and maintenance of large software systems; advanced software development techniques and large project management approaches; project planning, scheduling, resource management, accounting, configuration control, and documentation.
