Some people define software engineering as: 'the application of a
systematic, quantifiable approach to the development, execution, and
maintenance of software. It is a broad and comprehensive field, in
which engineering plays an important part, next to psychological and
managerial aspects. Keywords are evolution and complexity.
The field continually evolves, as the type of systems as well as the
world at large changes. New developments such as outsourcing, global
system development, service-orientation and the incorporation of off-
the-shelf software profoundly influence the field.
Note: Every programme, including the choice of optional courses, has to
be discussed and agreed upon with the master coordinator or a personal
mentor and approved by the Examination Board.
