notes For RGPV Bhopal AICTE Students

Software Engineering (CS-403) B.Tech RGPV notes AICTE flexible curricula


The purpose of this subject is to cover the underlying concepts and techniques used in Software Engineering & Project Management. Some of these techniques can be used in software design & its implementation.


The students should have at least one year of experience in programming a high-level language and databases. In addition, a familiarity with software development life cycle will be useful in studying this subject.

Practical and Lab work

Lab work should include a running case study problem for which different deliverable sat the end of each phase of a software development life cycle are to be developed. Thiswill include modeling the requirements, architecture and detailed design. Subsequentlythe design models will be coded and tested. For modeling, tools like Rational Roseproducts. For coding and testing, IDE like Eclipse, Net Beans, and Visual Studio can be used.
