This is a third-year course on software engineering for electrical, computer and software engineering majors. The pre-requisite for this class is CPSC 260 (Object Oriented Programming Design) or equivalent. Students are expected to have strong backgrounds in object oriented and procedural programming. Prior experience with Java is helpful but not required. However, students will be expected to pick up Java on their own for the assignments.Here is a useful reference for learning Java.
