Course objective

Learn the basics of empirical experimentation in the field of Software
Engineering.
Be able to operate in a lab environment and build a successful
experiment for software energy consumption.
Become familiar with the research problems in the field of green
software engineering.
Understand and measure the impact of software over energy consumption.

Course content

Students will work in teams to perform experiments on software energy
consumption in a controlled environment. They will have to carry out all
the phases of empirical experimentation, from experiment design to
operation, data analysis and reporting. They will be provided with
examples of previous experiments, but they will have to choose by
themselves the experimental subjects and hypotheses to test. During the
lab sessions, students will be assisted for technical operation of the
lab equipment as regards measurement and data gathering. Students will
also receive the required training for data analysis and visualization
(i.e. graphs, dashboards) using specialized software.

Form of tuition

Lectures (H). Lab sessions (pra).

Type of assessment
