Creating Safe Software Development Workshop by Tonex

Software engineering is an engineering-based approach to software development.

IEEE, in its standard 610.12-1990, defines software engineering as the application of a systematic, disciplined, which is a computable approach for the development, operation and maintenance of software.

Fritz Bauer defined software engineering as “the establishment and used standard engineering principles. It helps you to obtain, economically, software which is reliable and works efficiently on the real machines.”

Boehm defines software engineering as involving, “the practical application of scientific knowledge to the creative design and building of computer programs. It also includes associated documentation needed for developing, operating and maintaining them.”

No matter how you define software engineering, its surging popularity is undeniable.

Software engineers design and develop computer games, business applications, operating systems, network control systems, and middleware—to name just a few of the many career paths available.

The main goal of Software Engineering is to develop software applications for improving quality, budget, and time efficiency. Software Engineering ensures that the software that has to be built should be consistent, correct, also on budget, on time, and within the required requirements.

Experts in this field contend that software engineering is transforming the modern business landscape by providing organizations with the capacity to rapidly upscale their IT infrastructure and develop high-quality, reliable software solutions, thereby enhancing operations, optimizing processes, and driving greater efficiency.

With the help of software engineering, businesses can also reduce costs, automate manual tasks, explore new market opportunities, scale operations faster, increase communications, improve customer service, and generate new revenue streams.

Additionally, software engineering enables companies to develop more powerful and reliable databases for the storage and manipulation of large amounts of data and build complex systems that are more secure and better prepared to handle unforeseen risks.

Software engineering forms the basis of operational design and development to all computer systems. It is concerned with designing, writing, testing, implementing and maintaining software.

While most jobs are in industry, research labs also hire skilled software engineers, either for research in software engineering itself or for supporting software development in research environments. Skilled software engineers are also hired by startup companies, or are well prepared to start their own software development companies.

But software engineering is not a static profession. Software engineering has evolved with improved languages, interactive development environments and more sound best practices. Simultaneously, computers have grown more complex with a million cores distributed over networks, complex graphics and natural language interfaces and manage many sensors in a smartphone, smart-car or smart-home.

The future for software engineers is particularly strong and one that will continuously evolve with assistance from AI and robotics over the next 10–20 years. More and more of what we do in our daily lives is software enabled.

Clearly, individuals and organizations in the software engineering arenas need to keep up. Tonex can help.

Software Engineering Training Courses by Tonex

Over the past couple of decades, software engineering education has been emerging as an independent and mature discipline in parallel with the field’s increased responsibilities and evolutionary tasks.

Software Engineering Clinic Training Course by TonexSoftware engineering training classes by Tonex can fulfill ongoing education needs. In fact, Tonex offers nearly 100 software engineering-related courses in areas such as:

  • Agile
  • Software Engineering Training
  • Software Reliability
  • Software Requirements Engineering
  • Software Safety
  • Software Security
  • Software Testing

These classes are designed for software developers, software engineers, system engineers, test engineers, project managers, testing, verification & validation and configuration project managers.

Tonex Software Engineering courses cover a wide array of subject matter including the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC), which describes the period of time that starts with the software system being conceptualized and ends with the software system being discarded after usage.

Software engineers have several objectives in using the SDLC, including:

  • Assuring the software development process is a structured process
  • Determining the order of states involved in software development
  • Providing guidance
  • Specifying a particular approach for designing, building and maintaining software.

You also learn how software engineers approach security. Traditionally, security is incorporated in a software system after all the functional requirements have been addressed. However with the rise of cyberattacks, there is now a  need for security to be an integral part of the entire software development life cycle.

The importance of software engineering is immeasurable at this juncture in history and likely into the future.

With tools and methodologies changing and evolving in the field of software engineering, it’s very important for software engineers to stay current on new technologies and the latest software trends.
