  • Introduction to object-oriented systems
  • Project planning and initiation
  • Requirements analysis (i.e. requirements gathering and structuring)
  • Information systems modelling (i.e. UML modelling languages)
  • Information systems documentation

Learning Outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students will

  • know how information systems can be modelled
  • know and apply basic methods of systems modelling and design (i.e. UML modelling languages)
  • use systems-modelling methods to analyse, design, and implement information systems


Lectures Method

  • The course involves interactive lectures with exercises to integrate theoretical knowledge with practical design and analysis skills.
  • The e-learning platform Moodle is used throughout the course to disseminate course material and for information and discussion.
  • Case studies are used to show how the course contents are related.
