Integrating Software Engineering in Introductory Computing Courses
September/October 2002 (vol. 19 no. 5)
pp. 64-71

This article describes an introductory course for an undergraduate computing student. This course aims to integrate data structures and software engineering. In addition to requiring students to complete several varied assignments, some involving analysis, modeling, and software design, the coursework has them work in teams on a significant software design project. To help students complete this project, they use a 10-step process to develop an object-oriented software system. The authors discuss the philosophy of giving such a course and the concepts taught.

Index Terms:
curricula, data structures, introductory courses, object oriented, software engineering, UML.
