To provide theoretical understanding of and practical experience of a collaborative software development project.

Learning Teaching & Assessment Strategy:
Lectures introduce software engineering concepts and practical approaches. These are then applied to the project through supervised practical work in small groups and supported by tutorials. Students` understanding and practical skills are assessed by software demonstration and accompanying documentation. The ability to work co-opertively is monitored by the group tutor throughout the project. Supplementary assessment is an individual project based on the original group assignment, and a reflection on group work.
