Software Engineering for Students presents a range of current techniques and tools for people who have experienced the pleasures of writing programs and who want to see how things change in the scale up to large programs and software systems.

The students' familiarity with programming gives them relevant background and the confidence to grasp the fundamentals of this subject.

The book starts by explaining the challenges that large software projects present, moving on to cover the current principles, techniques and tools that are used in software development throughout the industrialised world.

From the Back Cover:

[shelving category: software engineering]

'Bell covers the main areas of software engineering with accuracy and authority, and without getting bogged down in superfluous detail. My students actually like this book; it's very readable.' (Martin Bush, South Bank University)

This fully revised version of Doug Bell’s Software Engineering: A Programming Approach continues to use the successful formula of the previous editions. The author’s approach is to present the main principles, techniques and tools used in software engineering, one by one, chapter by chapter. He provides the reader with the knowledge to select the appropriate techniques for the project in hand. He builds on the reader’s experience of coding small-scale applications, and examines everything they will need to begin programming large-scale software systems.

This book is a unique introduction to software engineering for all students of computer science and its related disciplines. It is also ideal for practitioners wishing to remain current with new developments in the area.

Features

  • Pragmatic, non-mathematical approach
  • Self-test questions within each chapter help the reader to fully understand the concepts
  • Numerous exercises are provided at the end of each chapter
  • Consistent use of the UML as a design notation
  • Case studies used throughout
  • An accompanying website with even more teaching and learning resources
