Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will:
_ be familiar with the most important current process models in software development and will be able to explain their particularities and differences.
_ be familiar with the problems in requirements analysis and, as a team, be able to create requirement specifications when given simple to medium fuzzy problem descriptions.
_ be proficient in the basic concepts of object-oriented analysis and can analyze and structure simple to medium-sized software development problems and model solutions using UML diagrams.
_ be familiar with some of the most important architectural and design patterns in software development and be able to explain them in detail.
_ be able to analyze tasks in teamwork and create solutions with the skills and tools learned.

Module content:
Students will be given an overview of sub-areas in software technology. They will get to know both classical and object-oriented process models in software development. The lecture will focus on object-oriented analysis and design. The most important diagrams from the Unified Modeling Language UML) will be applied and practiced with the help of practice-oriented examples, exercises and an OOA/D tool.
