Today, software plays an important role in bringing ease of use, efficiency, accuracy, productivity in almost all domains of human activities - banking, telecommunications, government applications, education, defense, satellite control systems, social networking, etc,. These are large software applications and some are critical systems. Software errors in such large applications can undesirably affect the lives, livelihood and businesses of many people. Studies also reveal that software maintenance costs are far greater (about 70% of total SW life cycle cost) than software development cost. Such reliable software systems cannot be built, just by a few programmers, cooperating in an adhoc way. It needs an 'engineering approach' and hence software engineering has emerged as an important discipline in software development. The module will impart students a sound understanding of the concepts, methods and tools used in the core software development activities namely in requirements, design, construction, testing and also the supporting activities of project management, quality assurance, configuration management, team management and process management.

During this Module the students also get to know the in and out of practical techniques of testing as expected by the industry. Module ensures an exhaustive coverage of the entire spectrum of Software Testing.

Live Technical Workshops allows you to get hands on experience on recent trends technologies like Cloud Computing, Mobile App Development etc. In today's world End Users access cloud-based applications through a web browser, while the business software and user's data are stored on servers at a remote location. Hence cloud computing allows companies to avoid upfront infrastructure costs, and focus on projects that differentiate their businesses instead of infrastructure.

Mobile Applications are usually developed in the specified languages using either the Android SDK, Windows SDK or iPhone SDK including development tools which are available. As of March 2016, more than 1,000,000 applications have been developed for these three, with over 90 billion downloads for the same, hence its necessary to be well-versed with them.
