Developing real-case software systems is complex; they are large, and their development often starts when it is still unclear what they should precisely do. The goal of software modeling is to model modern, complex software systems in a systematic manner. The lectures will cover and apply a number of software modeling notations and techniques. The students will learn which technique is the most appropriate for which problem, how to describe a (software) problem in models, how to use such models to reason about software, and finally how to use models to discuss ideas and plans with other stakeholders so that requirements are clarified and software systems are well understood and developed in a more reliable way.

Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU Amsterdam) awards credits based on the ECTS system. Contact hours listed under a course description may vary due to the combination of lecture-based and independent work required for each course therefore, CEA's recommended credits are based on the ECTS credits assigned by VU Amsterdam. 1 ECTS equals 28 contact hours assigned by VU Amsterdam.
