Course Objectives:

  1. To enable students to apply a systematic application of scientific knowledge in creating and building cost effective software solutions to business and other types of problems.
  2. To make students understand different phases to make a software & study them in detail.
  3. To make students understand different testing techniques for different projects, making the students understand to develop quality software, its maintenance & software reliability.
  4. To make students aware about the design models & its principles (data design, component design, interface design & architectural design).
