ITC203 Object Oriented Systems Analysis and Design (8)

UML (Unified Modelling Language) is used to document requirements, analysis and design activities that are part of an iterative and incremental development process. Within this subject, students will learn how to produce UML analysis and design diagrams, to analyse and verify software system requirements, and to produce and verify UML analysis and design models. Students will also learn how to evaluate and select the most appropriate design patterns for use in a software system.
