Software Development

CIS 

Senior (4xxx)

251

We are requesting to change the prefix, number, title, description, learning outcomes, and suggested literature of CIS-4251 (Software Development), a required course in the Computer Science track of the BS in CIS. The changes will better characterize what we currently teach in that course.

New Course Description:

This course introduces students to fundamental Software Engineering concepts and current practices by covering software development activities associated with the entire software development lifecycle, including ethical and legal issues. Concepts and practices are applied through the collaborative, incremental, and iterative development of a comprehensive software system for a variety of hardware platforms and software clients, and with the support of professional integrated development environments, version control, and project tracking tools. Topics covered include, but are not limited to: software process models; domain modeling; model-driven development; elicitation and documentation of requirements; software architectures; design paradigms and patterns; project management, tracking, and release planning; collaborative development; testing, deployment, and maintenance; ethical and legal issues in Software Engineering.

Computer Applications for Busi

CGS

Freshman (1xxx)

100

Need to prevent students from receiving credit for both CGS1100 and CGS1570 as they are both introductions to the fundamentals of personal computing and substantially the same in much of their content. The course is offered under two different numbers to satisfy the requirements of systemwide common prerequisites.

New Course Description:

This course provides an introduction to the fundamentals of personal computing for business majors and other non-computer science majors. Topics include the Windows operating system, word processing, spreadsheets, database, presentation aids, internet, e-mail and related areas. Students may not receive credit for CGS1100 and also for CGS1570.
