Relationship with Programme Philosophy and   Aims

 

This module provides part of the skills needed by   developers to create modern software applications. It focuses on popular modelling techniques   used in the design and construction of software systems. The techniques cover   how a software system can be designed from a variety of viewpoints, different   levels of mathematical abstraction and with various degrees of granularity.   This feeds into the overall mathematical and scientific basis of the Computer   Science course.

 

 

Indicative content

 

  • Development processes

  • Object-oriented requirements        elucidation and analysis

  • UML models of requirements - use        diagrams, sequence diagrams, conceptual diagrams and object diagrams)

  • Object-oriented design – design        patterns for responsibility assignments

  • UML models of designs –        object-sequence diagrams (or collaboration diagrams) and design class diagrams        

  • Relation between design and coding

  • Introduction to validations

  • Advanced models and their use – state        diagrams, activity diagrams and component

  • CASE tool support for UML

 

 

 

Study mode / delivery method(s):

The module will be delivered   using weekly practical classes, consisting of both lecture and activity   material. Additional resources will be available on Moodle for self-study.

 

Practical activities will adopt   a problem base approach to learning in conjunction with case studies to   enable learning through practice and experience.

 

Intended Learning Outcomes:

 

Learning outcomes:

Learning and Teaching methods

 

1.  Produce a design specification by applying   appropriate analysis and design techniques to a problem domain

 

This module will primarily be   taught in weekly practical classes, where the materials will be introduced,   students will have the opportunity to work on sample problems and to receive   feedback. Students will also be provided with practice exercises to work on   between classes and will be encouraged to use Moodle for peer discussion. A   substantial part of the learning process will take place whilst the students   are constructing their coursework solution.

 

 

 

2.    Construct object-oriented models of software   using UML

 

3.   Critically evaluate the role that design   techniques play within the software industry

 

4. Formalise   a design using appropriate modelling techniques and mathematical abstractions

Assessment and   Feedback:

 

Summative   assessment:

 

This module will be assessed by a Coursework,   submitted mid-way through the module, and an Examination. The Phase Test is   included to allow students to track their progress early on and for any   common issues to be addressed.

 

Assessment 1 - Coursework – 40%

Students will be required to   construct a design specification for a given scenario using object modelling   technique..

This assessment tests learning   outcomes 1 and 2

 

Assessment 2 - Examination – 2 hours   duration - 60%

Unseen closed book examination involving   UML modelling and mathematical abstractions, as well as incorporating a   written question.

This assessment tests learning   outcomes 3 and 4

Formative   assessment:

 

Students will be provided with regular   practice activities which can be reviewed in class for formative assessment   reasons. Students will also be provided with sample papers for the   Examination.

 

 

 

Feedback:

 

Feedback will be available regularly   during teaching sessions.

 

Students will receive individual feedback   of their coursework submission.

 

Cohort feedback will be made available   after the examination detailing common errors and suggesting methods for   improvement.
