Software engineering is the study and an application of engineering to the design, development, and maintenance of software.[1][2][3]

Welcome

Typical formal definitions of software engineering are:

  • "the application of a systematic, disciplined, quantifiable approach to the development, operation, and maintenance of software";[4]
  • "an engineering discipline that is concerned with all aspects of software production";[5]
  • and "the establishment and use of sound engineering principles in order to economically obtain software that is reliable and works efficiently on real machines."[6]

Land Management is a tough thing to get right. In many cases, you need to find compromises between the parties involved, and work hard on ensuring everybody feels part of the process. In this unit, each student gets a piece of land to role play in a number of micro-nations. Each week, students will face new challenges as they are presented, all the time trying to use their land to the best of their abilities while also protecting the environment as a whole.
