Duration: 2 Days
Software development also known as software engineering is one of the core subfields of Computer Science. Effective software development requires software developers to be educated about software development principles, processes and best practices. Software development is an essential field of study as Chief Information Officers and Digital Leaders now understand the importance of software development and the impact it can have on all aspects of companies’ daily business. This course will provide an introductory, hands-on experience in key aspects of software engineering that accompany the development of software. Based on proven principles and best practices, this course covers principles and practices that provide sound base for software design and development.
This course will equip learners with the following competencies:
- Provide participants with the foundational principles of software development
- Provide participants with the software development life cycle (SDLC) process to build software applications
- Introduce participants to the significance and practices of specifying requirements and design in software development
- Introduce participants to practices of implementation and testing in software development
Who Should Attend
- Junior programmers
- Programmers aspiring to be software developers
- Minimum diploma holder
- Participants are expected to have some coding experience and be familiar with at least one programming language eg. Java

(2000) degree in Software Engineering from National University of Singapore, an M.Sc. degree (1985) in Physics from University of Delhi, and a B.Sc. (Honours) degree (1983) in Physics from University of Delhi. Dr Wadhwa’s research and teaching interests include software engineering, interaction design, information visualization and computing education. In her teaching engagements, Assoc Prof Wadhwa has supervised many undergraduate and post-graduate students in the NUS School of Computing. She has developed, coordinated and taught several courses in the areas of software engineering and human computer interaction e.g. object oriented analysis and design, software engineering principles and patterns, software system design, interaction design, and information visualization.
In her recent research work, Assoc Prof Wadhwa has worked on gender issues in human-computer interaction, user modelling and evaluation of health applications and in improving quality of software design models. Her research has been presented in major conferences such as the FSE Foundations of Software Engineering, Workshop at ICSE International Conference on Software Engineering, and CHI Conference on Human Computer Interaction.
Assoc Prof Wadhwa has also contributed book chapters to volumes including Wiley Handbook for Human-Computer Interaction and Springer’s Informatics and Communication Technologies for Societal Development. Assoc Prof Wadhwa is the initiator and leader of the Code for Community programme, an initiative by NUS School of Computing to bring computing education to underserved communities. She has been very active in organising and judging many national and international competitions and hackathons including CodeXtreme, NUS Data Science Challenge, Singapore Science and Engineering Fair(SSEF), and Intel International Science and Engineering Fair. Assoc Prof Wadhwa is also an active member of MakerLab at School of Computing, a Faculty representative at Student Chapter of Singapore Computer Society, and advisor to Computing Club, at NUS School of Computing.
