The world of software engineering requires high flexibility, an influx of new ideas, and the courage to challenge traditional approaches. As a software engineer, you need to know the methods, workflows and tools to handle continuously growing complexity and shortened development cycles. You must be able to work in teams to build high-quality software.

In this course, we will introduce the basic concepts of object-oriented software engineering. You will learn and apply UML modeling, patterns and project management techniques that are used when developing complex software systems.

This course is interactive. You will watch videos in which we explain critical theory. You will participate in online exercises to practice your knowledge including quizzes, UML modeling with peer reviews, and programming exercises with immediate feedback
