Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)
- Knowledge and understanding
Students will acquire the fundamental knowledge necessary to the building of complex software systems, with special attention to the object-oriented design and programming paradigm, exemplified through the C# language.
They will become familiar with different development processes for the management of complex software systems, together with the visual notation UML for software modeling and the ‘design patterns’ as logical models for solving recurring problems in the software design and development phases
- Applying knowledge and understanding
Students will be able to apply the most widespread practices in agile and prescriptive process models for designing, implementing and testing complex software systems. They will also be able to estimate the costs of the software development, using empirical estimation models, as well as to plan the realization of a software project, monitoring the advancement and the cost of all the related activities.
- Making judgements
Students will be able to evaluate the goodness of a software not simply on the basis of their own experience and/or of subjective criteria, but on the basis of specific quality standards for the evaluation of processes and products.
- Communication skills
Students will be able to use the specific metalanguage of object-oriented programming languages, design patterns and agile and prescriptive process models.
- Learning skills
Students will acquire the ability to learn the syntactic and semantic peculiarities underpinning any object-oriented programming language.

Project (to be developed individually or by groups of two students), written and oral exam.
The project work, whose topic is freely chosen by the student, must be handed in at least 7 days before the written exam. It is approved if the mark is at least 18/30. The mark is valid for every exam session subsequent to the submission of the project. In case of late submission, the project will not be accepted. Should the project be resubmitted in a subsequent exam call, the mark is cancelled and a 5/30 penalty is applied to the mark of the newly submitted project.
The written exam, that can be taken only after passing the project work, consists of 6 questions and 1 exercise, split into two parts, and must be completed in 60 minutes. It is passed with a mark of 18/30, the mark is only valid for the exam call in which the written exam is taken.
The oral exam, that can be taken only after the approval of the project work and the passing of the written exam, consists of a discussion of the project work and of the written exam, plus further questions. If passed, it concurs to an adjustment comprised between -3/30 and 3/30 on the average of the two previous marks, thus giving the final mark.
