We extended sample solution 8 the PERT chart by an explanation why some edges are not included in the chart but actually belong there. :-)
Next week the Thursday lecture will contain a question and answer section for the exam.
Please prepare your questions beforehand.
The schedule for the after-exam (Nachklausur) is fixed. Thursday 8th of October 14:00 - 17:00.
Todays office hour is canceled. Please send an email to kim (at) to clarify any open issues and questions
or come to office 302 in building E1.3 tomorrow (23.06.2009) between 13:00 and 15:00 for personal support.
2009-06-04 (for participants of exercise groups 6 and 7 only)
Due to next weeks holiday, we have to distribute participants of exercise group 6 and 7 to alternative slots.
For that reason, we created a doodle poll.
Please vote for a group that you will attend instead of your usual Thursday group until Monday 08.06.2009 16:00.
Please user your matriculation number as participant user name.
(We also sent out emails to students that are registered for those groups).
Corrected and clarified version of assignment 6 is online: see here
There is a small howto about the usage of AspectJ on the CIPs available: see here
While Kim Herzig is away (till 03.06) Andrzej Wasylkowski (Room 327) will coordinate assignment sheets and tutorial groups.
Assignment 4 is extended until end of next week. That means also there are no tutorial groups and quizzes next week.
More on that in next week's lecture on Tuesday.
The schedule for the first exam is fixed now: see here
The exam regulations are fixed now: All students can participate in both exams. The better grade counts. (Exceptions can be found here)
The room for Group 4 has changed to SR016 in Building E1.3
Due to the high number of participants, we had to make a number of changes:
  • We have changed the exam date to July 25th.
  • Quizzes now take place in the exercise groups, starting this week; this week's quiz is a dry run.
  • Quiz points no longer account for the final grade, but are still required for the exam.
For details, see Exams below.
The office hours are scheduled on Monday from 15:00 till 17:00. You can find Kim Herzig in Room 302.
The office hours will start NEXT WEEK (04.05.2009). All questions regarding the first exercise sheet will be answered in the exercise groups.
The first quiz will be ungraded.
We sent out the emails with the passwords for the personal info page (see below).
You can see your exercise group and quiz points here:
The first assignment sheet is online. Download it from here.
We offer two new exercise groups (Wednesday12-14 and Tuesday 14-16) parallel to already existing ones.
The "Telecommunications II" Tuesday lecture has been moved to 12:00-13:30, such that it no longer conflicts with the Software Engineering lecture.
The Monday exercise groups are shifted to Wednesday and have new time slots (12-14, 14-16).
The exam and grading regulations have now been finalized. There will be one end-term exam. See at the end of this page.
The scheduled lecture times (in the morning from 8:30 till 10:00) will stay unchanged, as all considered alternatives are in conflict with other courses.
The registration is now open!

About the Course

Software engineering is the application of a systematic, disciplined, quantifiable approach to the development, operation, and maintenance of software. In this core lecture (Stammvorlesung, 9 CP), we build on earlier exposure to software engineering (e.g. the software lab (Software Praktikum) in Saarland's Bachelor's program) and explore in-depth software engineering topics such as
  • Requirements Engineering
  • Software Specification
  • Software Design and Architecture
  • Advanced Programming Techniques
  • Software Quality Assurance
  • Software Maintenance and Evolution
  • Software Project Management


Course Registration

The registration for the software engineering course starts on 03.03.2009 (00:00:01) and ends on 24.04.2009 (23:59:59).
