Students are expected to know the basics of software engineering as taught in an undergraduate course using a text such as Von Mayrhauser, "Software Engineering: Methods and Management"; Pressman, "Software Engineering: A Practitioners Approach"; or Somerville, "Software Engineering". Students should have experience in designing and debugging object-oriented software. A good understanding of discrete math and logic including first order predicate calculus is expected (CS 166), and data structures (CS 200); CS 200, CS 201, and CS 253 are prerequisites to CS 314 which is a prerequisite to this course.
