IV2032 Requirements Engineering 7.5 credits
This course has been cancelled.
Educational levelSecond cycle
Academic level (A-D)D
Grade scaleA, B, C, D, E, FX, F
At present this course is not scheduled to be offered.
Requirements engineering (RE) plays a fundamental role within the systems development process. The goal of this course is to bring in the concepts, methods and techniques needed in the eliciting, analyzing, documenting, validating, and managing requirements for complex information systems. It explains how requirements engineering fits into a broader systems development process, and provides an understanding of the main challenges in requirements engineering nowadays.
The students will learn how to:
- Identify stakeholders and their influence on the system requirements.
- Specify functional requirements using different modeling methods.
- Identify and classify non-functional requirements, influences and constraints.
- Negotiate and prioritize requirements.
- Validate requirements.
- Document and trace requirements using computer-based tools.
- Manage changing requirements and establish traceability of changes.
- Practice the different roles in the requirement engineering process, by working in groups.
- Analyze the practical use of the latest scientific contributions within the RE subject.
Course main content
Since requirements management is a multidisciplinary field and closely related to areas such as general management, project and product management, product marketing, and industrial design, students from a variety of disciplines can benefit from this course.
The following subjects will be handled during the course:
- Roles and actors in the requirement engineering process.
- Classification of requirements.
- Contemporary methods for collecting and analyzing stakeholder requirements.
- Methods for goal modeling.
- Computer-based tools for documenting and managing requirements.
- Techniques for linking requirements to design models and vice-versa.

- PRO1 - Project, 3.5 credits, grade scale: P, F
- TEN1 - Examination, 4.0 credits, grade scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
The course examines through a project (3.5hp) and a written exam (4hp).
The written exam concerns grades F, Fx, E, D, C, B, and A, and for the project applies P or F. For the course as a whole, applies the grade from the exam and passed project.
