|LANGSTON UNIVERSITY TULSA||SPRING SEMESTER, 2006|
|COURSE TITLE:||Software Engineering
|CLASS MEETING DAY:||Tuesday|
|TIME:||8:20 PM-11:00 PM|
|ROOM NUMBER:||T-MCB 2315|
|INSTRUCTOR:||John H. Young|
|HOME PHONE NUMBER:||749-8547|
|REQUIRED TEXTBOOK:||Roger S. Pressman, Software Engineering: A Practitioner's Approach, Sixth Edition|
Examines principles of control for large programming projects requiring extensive software support. Develops strategies, methods, and procedures for the design, development, testing, implementation, and documentation of software and studies the history of successful projects. Student teams are organized to evaluate problems typically faced by professionals in software engineering.
Computer software is becoming increasingly complex, as more functionality and useability are demanded. Applications are developed by teams, and require coordination and management. Sound engineering approaches are required for the development of quality software.
|4||Exams 1-4||Approx. 30 points each||120|
|1||Final Exam||Approx. 150||150||1||Class Project||150||150|
Exams will consist mainly of essay questions.
All grades will be included in the final grade. Make-up exams must be scheduled in advance of the scheduled exam date, and they must be taken within one week before or after the scheduled date.
Class attendance and participation will be used to determine borderline grades.
Upon successful completion of the course, students should be able to:
Attendance is required. While no points are deducted for absences, you will miss the points for any quiz or assignments you fail to turn in on a day you are absent. If you must be absent, check with the instructor about any assignment that may be due on the day you return. If you miss a day when an assignment is to be turned in, it is your responsibility to turn it in ahead of time.
If any member of the class feels that he/she has a disability and needs special accommodations of any nature, the instructor will work with you and the Office of Disabled Student Services to provide reasonable accommodations to ensure that you have a fair opportunity to perform in the class. Please advise the instructor of such a disability and the desired accommodations at some point before, during, or immediately after the first scheduled class period.
If, for whatever reason, you do not complete this course, you MUST FORMALLY WITHDRAW by filling out and turning in the proper paperwork. The responsibility is YOURS!
If your name appears on the final grade sheets and you have not accumulated enough points to pass the class, you will receive an F even if you are no longer attending.

Langston University in compliance with Title VI and VII of the Civil Rights Acts of 1964, Executive Order 1121 as amended, Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972, American with Disabilities Act of 1990, and other Federal laws and regulations, does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age, religion, handicap, or status as a veteran in any of its policies, practices, or procedures. This includes but is not limited to admissions, employment, financial aid and educational services.
Langston University fully subscribes to all required standards of the ADA Act of 1990. Persons in need of assistance should contact the ADA Compliance Officer in the Office of Student Affairs, Room 119 Page Hall, 405-466-3445. This should be reported at some point before, during, or immediately after the first scheduled class period so accommodations can be provided for the student to be successful in that class.
All electronic devices (e.g., cell phones, pagers, palm pilots, beeper watches) are considered unnecessary distractions and are to be turned off and (with the exception of watches) concealed during class. Thus, interacting with these devices during class will not be tolerated. Instructors may make exceptions for instructional purposes. A student who anticipates an emergency and expects to be contacted in class by an outside source must go directly through the emergency dispatch system identified on each of the respective campuses. The emergency dispatcher will take the message and deliver it to the instructor.
A student who fails to comply with this policy will be initially dismissed from the class and (per the Instructor's discretion) may be counted absent. Points may be deducted for work missed during that time. A student who violates this policy a second time will be dropped from the course for disruptive behavior. A student whose electronic device is activated during an exam will be dismissed from the class and denied the opportunity to complete or take that exam. An Instructor may elect not to grade that exam.
