SOFTWARE ARCHITECTURE
COURSE TITLE: CSSE577 - Software Architecture
COURSE DATES: June 3 – August 19
LOCATION: Online
CONTACT: [email protected]
COURSE DESCRIPTION
Software developers step-up their technical role, in a natural way, by moving
into design and architecture. This gives them more responsibility, more of a
chance to make contributions that other people also find valuable, and more
opportunity to express their own creativity on the job.
Today's developers are familiar with software design at the objectoriented level, using OO methods and patterns in their daily work.
Software architecture, however, is a step above this. Many developers are
not familiar, from their own experience, with making large-scale choices in
design so as to meet the complex requirements of a good-sized system.
Our class fills in that background with industry-wide experience.
In addition to new system development, architectural knowledge is tapped
whenever there is a significant design problem with an existing system.
The customer now wants to have twice as many users – how do we
address that? Who is qualified to help lead the design study?
This is a course in the architecture and design issues and tradeoffs of
complete commercial systems. Topics include building on components and
make/buy decisions, quality attribute optimization, architectural principles
and alternative styles, high-level design documentation, and modeling
practices in human interface design.

HIGH QUALITY STANDARDS
For the 17th consecutive year, Rose-Hulman has earned distinction as
America’s No. 1 undergraduate engineering college, based on a national
survey of deans and senior faculty conducted by U.S. News & World Report
for its 2015 college guidebook. In addition, once again, Rose-Hulman was
ranked No. 1 in five academic programs: chemical engineering, civil
engineering, computer engineering, electrical engineering and mechanical
engineering. Rose-Hulman’s ranking is among colleges that offer the
bachelor’s or master’s as its top degree in engineering.

22 modules covering
foundational and current
topic areas
Four assessments to
reinforce key learning
concepts for each module
Discussion forums for
participants to discuss
questions posed by RoseHulman faculty and other
professionals participating
in the course
The high quality RoseHulman standards you’ve
come to know and love

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
After taking this course, participants will be able to:





Describe principles of building significant
systems for different purposes.
Determine how to improve the desired
qualities of existing systems.
Explore well-known architectural patterns,
their benefits and trade-offs.
Create systems exhibiting the desired
levels of quality attributes like availability
and performance.
Begin systems that will have pervasive,
long-term, desirable capabilities.



Investigate the art of building frameworks that
are most useful to everyone else on a project—
like developers and testers.
Understand how to make agile architectures,
and let the design play an enabling role in a longterm, agile development process.
Understand how to coordinate the design work
done by multiple organizations. This includes
sourcing decisions, and getting the flow of
required communication/documentation just
right.
“This course is structured in such a way that you gain an overall
understanding of software architecture, while you are working on a related
"inquiry" project at the same time. This allows for you to try out all the ideas
in the course, asking others you work with as to how each course concept
would work at your place of business.”
STEVE CHENOWETH │ Associate Professor of Computer Science and Software
Engineering
KEY BENEFITS



Position yourself in your organization as a
software technical leader versed in
fundamental and current design principles.
Gain key insights from leading faculty who
will impact how you and your organization
approach software design to make projects
durable, feature-rich, and high quality.
Engage confidently with your
organization’s management and learn to
identify product design opportunities and
navigate challenges.
WHO SHOULD PARTICIPATE?
Prerequisites: Software development and/or
maintenance experience and the ability write and
communicate effectively.
Software Architecture is designed to be valuable to
individuals and organizations because it provides the
concepts, techniques and practical application to
enable immediate contributions in the workplace.
Participants are usually interested in becoming
software architects or higher-level designers who will
take direct advantage of the knowledge gained.

MODULES AND TOPICS
Through the text, a series of directed readings, active
learning exercises and case studies, students will be
exposed to a blend of classic and emergent
techniques to grasp a thorough understanding of key
software architecture principles. The course will
focus on these three areas:
1.
How to build significant systems for
different purposes.
2. How to improve the desired qualities of
existing systems, focusing on:
 Availability
 Performance
 Security
 Interoperability
 Modifiability
 Usability
 Testability
We like to keep our classroom sizes small — even our
virtual ones — to allow for the close faculty/student
interaction for which Rose-Hulman is known.
