Software and Systems

The Software and Systems Research Area covers research on methods and tools for mastering the development of complex software systems. The following tasks are tackled:

  • To develop new engineering processes.
  • To investigate the use of model driven development.
  • To perform research on the foundations of software engineering.
  • To study verification and validation techniques.
  • To assist in the development and in the use of e-learning tools.

The following application domains stand out: industry-critical systems, e-learning systems, web-based distributed systems, enterprise architectures.

The research theme on software and systems is managed by Laboratory for Advanced Software Systems (LASSY).
