General Information

These courses are part the ICM track of the M.Sc. curriculum. They are instances of the seminar and lab called “Enterprise Software Engineering” in the module handbook. They are aimed at students who want to specialize in software engineering.

Project = Seminar + Lab

The project is a pair of a seminar and a lab that address related topics. Typically, the seminar provides the foundations for the lab (in terms of concepts and tools).

It is possible to attend the seminar only. Attending the lab without prior successful participation in the seminar is not possible.


Increasing complexity of modern software calls for more effective and predictable appraoches to software development. This need has led to the rise of a new paradigm: Modell-driven Software Engineering (MDSE). MDSE technology is being successfully used in many domains, for instance in automotive industry, and is continuously evolving. Knowledge of MDSE concepts and tools is becoming an elementary skill for a software engineer.

The seminar (summer semester 2011) adresses

  • the concepts of MDSE,
  • current MDSE languages and (free) MDSE tools,
  • a language and a tool developed at our department (StarTransformer).

The lab (winter semester 2011/2012) will be dedicated to the further development of StarTransformer, addressing, among others, the conceptual and practical integration with other existing MDSE approaches and tools.

The experience gained during the lab is expected to help identify further options for improvement that could be pursued as master theses. Successful lab participants would be the primary candidates for such theses.
