Software Engineering with Objects and Components 1 Timetable

The table below details all the events which are planned for this course. I will endeavour to ensure they occur on the indicated dates, but things may vary a little. The log contains a record of the actual progress of the course.

The main source for the course is Using UML: Software Engineering with Objects and Components by Perdita Stevens and Rob Pooley. You should purchase a copy of this book. The Using UML events in the timetable give guidance on which chapters should be read by a particular week in the course. Further (backround) readings are taken from the book Software Engineering (6th Edition) by Ian Sommerville, which you should have read parts of for CS2.

Further readings on topics specific to lectures are to be found on the lecture log. You should check this regularly.
