Select Lectures - Overview

The Overview module set sets the context of the Select Lectures in Software Engineering.

This module set comprises three video modules.

Each module is shipped on a single DVD for viewing on a computer only (see technical requirements)..

The Evolution of Software

The computer is an amazing invention – on a daily basis, it seems, new applications arise, changing the way we live, work and play. Computers are used almost everywhere we go, and have moved from providing occasional assistance almost to the point of being essential for day-to-day life.

In this module we will explore the early days of computing, and examine how the decisions made 5 or 6 decades ago have shaped the world in which we live, and the industry in which we work.

The Future of Software Engineering

Software intensive systems (SIS) have become the foundation of virtually every modern technology.
Software content in virtually every product and service will continue to grow—in some cases dramatically.
Software must be demonstrably safe, secure, and reliable.
Requirements will emerge as systems evolve. This may be one of the most important characteristics of future systems. It’s something that will challenge software engineers for decades to come.
Interoperability and “networkability” will become dominant as “mash-ups” become the norm
A “smart world” demands better, more reliable software.
