    CS599 Software Engineering I

    This is the WWW page for Dick Botting's (dick) part of the Spring 2001 CS599 Foundations of Software Systems See the HOME page, and SYLLABUS.

    Engineering makes the construction of better products possible. Engineering is about producing the best product you can with limited resources in the most efficient way possible.

    Engineering techniques and methods tend to evolve through failures. Although the uncovered methods, tools, techniques, and processes all help, there is no replacement for leadership and personal judgment in engineering. As Henry Petroski put it To Engineer is Human.

    In our Master's degree all projects start with submitting an SRS that follows the IEEE software engineering standards.
