Warren T. Jones, Ph.D., PE
Software quality matters. Software errors in engineering systems can be very expensive, sometimes leading to catastrophic loss and even loss of human life. Since software has become a component of virtually all engineering systems today, a basic knowledge of software engineering and related software security issues has become vital to practicing engineers in all disciplines. This course presents an overview at the conceptual level. The content of this course can also serve as a beginning point for preparation for the Certified Software Development Professional (CSDP) exam.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
