The course provides students with in-depth knowledge on the field of requirements engineering (RE). The course is interdisciplinary, for RE is intended to elicit the vague, informal needs from the stakeholders and build a precise (sometimes formal) specification for a software system to build.

The intended learning outcomes are as follows: "At the end of the course, the successful student":

  • Knows the phases of the┬áRE process and understands their interplay
  • Can choose the most suitable technique for a given phase depending on the context at hand
  • Is able to express requirements in different notations to be used both in agile development and for safety-critical systems
  • Understands and can execute automated reasoning techniques for analyzing requirements
  • Is able to read and comprehend state-of-the-art literature in the RE field

The course will cover the following topics:

  • The RE process and its activities
  • Standards and tools
  • Agile RE, user stories
  • Requirements elicitation
  • Linguistic aspects of natural language requirements
  • From requirements to architectures
  • Requirements prioritization
