Software Engineering

Software Engineering

Software Engineering is an engineering discipline concerned with systematic approaches to the analysis, design, assessment, implementation, testing, maintenance, and reengineering of software. Our faculty does work on software performance, scientific software, software architecture, software evolution, software testing and analysis, software visualization, web engineering.


Gabriele BavotaGabriele Bavota

Prof. Bavota's research interests lie in the area of software maintenance and evolution.
