Abstract

Teaching Software Engineering on an undergraduate programme is challenging, particularly when dealing with large numbers of students. On one hand, a strong understanding of software and good programming skills are prerequisites. On the other hand, the scale of the projects developed as part of undergraduate programmes do not always make the need for engineering obvious. Encouraging teamwork when students have little professional experience also adds to the level of complexity when delivering material. In this paper, we present a study on the redesign of a second year undergraduate course on Software Engineering for a large cohort.
