Objectives of Programme's Learning Outcomes

  • Imagine, design, develop, and implement conceptual models and computer solutions to address complex problems including decision-making, optimisation, management and production as part of a business innovation approach by integrating changing needs, contexts and issues (technical, economic, societal, ethical and environmental).
    • Identify complex problems to be solved and develop the specifications with the client by integrating needs, contexts and issues (technical, economic, societal, ethical and environmental).
    • On the basis of modelling, design a system or a strategy addressing the problem raised; evaluate them in light of various parameters of the specifications.
    • Deliver a solution selected in the form of diagrams, graphs, prototypes, software and/or digital models.
    • Evaluate the approach and results for their adaptation (modularity, optimisation, quality, robustness, reliability, upgradeability, etc.).
    • Integrate technological innovation and intelligence within engineering teams.
  • Plan, manage and lead projects in view of their objectives, resources and constraints, ensuring the quality of activities and deliverables.
    • Define and align the project in view of its objectives, resources and constraints.
    • Exploit project management principles and tools, particularly the work plan, schedule, document monitoring, versioning and software development methodologies.
    • Respect deadlines and timescales
  • Work effectively in teams, develop leadership, and make decisions in multidisciplinary, multicultural and international contexts.
    • Interact effectively with others to carry out common projects in various contexts (multidisciplinary, multicultural, and international).
    • Contribute to the management and coordination of a team that may be composed of people of different levels and disciplines.
  • Communicate and exchange information in a structured way - orally, graphically and in writing, in French and in one or more other languages - scientifically, culturally, technically and interpersonally, by adapting to the intended purpose and the relevant public.
    • Use and produce scientific and technical documents (reports, plans, specifications) adapted to the intended purpose and the relevant public.
  • Adopt a professional and responsible approach, showing an open and critical mind in an independent professional development process.
    • Analyse their personal functioning and adapt their professional attitudes.

Learning Outcomes of UE

analyse a complex problem; split the problem into quality software components ; build quality software components ; develop the software implementing this resolution with modern programming tools; develop collaborative and communicative attitude by teamworks, presentations in public and written reports; display initiative, innovation and organization (allocation of tasks, synchronization, ...).

Content of UE

The methods used for large software development (MERISE, UML); Software abstraction and decision Life-cycle; The Unified software development process; Agile software development methods (eXtreme Programming, Scrum, TTUP); Software project management (planning, methods of cost estimation, team management); Software testing;  
Implementation of a solution to a complex application. The project is a teamwork, a good coordination is essential. Using standard project management tools s (collaborative portals, Trello, management of versions with SVN or Git, etc.). Study and application of an IT project management method like Prince2. Study and use of software estimation methods.
