Fall 2021 Schedule

Advanced Software Engineering does not have a typical class schedule. Instead, this course consists of:

  • Activities done with the entire class. These are required. The class will meet in person in CO 209.
  • Activities done in team subgroups.
  • Team activities, with or without your advisor.

You must monitor this schedule closely, to ensure you and your team meet all the course deadlines and requirements. Forgetting to read the schedule is not an excuse for missing an assignment.
