In my teaching, I do not only motivate students to learn, but also I teach them how to learn. In the fields of computing sciences and software engineering, learning about what is available today is not enough to lead to a successful career. The knowledge is changing on a daily basis and students need to develop techniques for learning by themselves. Computing sciences and software engineering students are expected, more than other students of other fields of science and engineering, to be able to learn by themselves for the rest of their career in order to cope with an ever-changing body of knowledge.
Software design process, design and architecture of large systems, design for change and expansion; Documentation, inspection; Incremental design; Classes and objects, structured and object oriented analysis and design; Revision and version control; Project organization.

Course Objective and the Method of Presentation of the Course Material
The main objectives of this course are:
The course is quite practical in flavour and it does point to the use of the introduced concepts in software systems design. A certain degree of previous programming, design, and mathematical experience is essential for survival.
Three lectures; tutorials, Winter 2015/2016
