Course content

Practical and active modelling by use of UML, focusing on component based architecture and development.

The course uses UMLs best practices for modelling systems at different levels; business level, software architecture and software component level, focusing on analysis and architecture patterns.

Platform independent models are used for automatic generation of platform specific models, e.g. J2EE, CORBA, MS .Net and Web Services / XML.

Modelling will be supported by a system development process for component based interoperable systems, based on a specialization of the Unified Process.

Keywords: Model Driven System Development, Model Driven Architecture / Development, metamodeling, model transformations, Domain-Specific Languages, UML profiles, business modeling, Enterprise Modeling, Enterprise Architecture, SOA architectures and platforms, BPMN, BPEL, Web Services, WSDL, XML, Model Driven Interoperability, Ontologies.

Learning outcome

This course gives an overview of object modeling and model based software development and aims to give the student an understanding of advantages and disadvantages of adopting these principles in system engineering.

The student should be able to use objects to model different phenomena in the context of both analysis and design, and an understanding of important methods and prerequisites for efficient utilization of reuse in modeling and software engineering.

Admission

PhD candidates from the University of Oslo should apply for classes and register for examinations through Studentweb.

If a course has limited intake capacity, priority will be given to PhD candidates who follow an individual education plan where this particular course is included. Some national researchers’ schools may have specific rules for ranking applicants for courses with limited intake capacity.

PhD candidates who have been admitted to another higher education institution must apply for a position as a visiting student within a given deadline.
