The University of New England is the only Australian public university to be awarded the maximum 5 stars for Overall Experience by the Good Universities Guide, 13 years in a row. UNE has delivered distance education since 1955—that’s longer than any other Australian university. Perhaps that’s why students continue to rate UNE so highly for student satisfaction and teaching quality. With over 170 degrees offered online, and more than 22,000 students, UNE is an expert in online education.

Upon completion of this subject, students will be able to:
work with other programmers and other teams of programmers on large software projects;
apply collaborative software development practices and tool chains;
design and develop features for a software system, from conception through to testing, deployment, and continuous improvement;
design, model, and investigate user interaction and user experience with software;
apply techniques for verifying the quality of software during development and explain the ethical considerations around software failure risks and their impact; and
investigate, analyse, understand, and modify the design of program code, including code written by others.
- Topics will be available to enrolled students in the subjects Learning Management System site approximately one week prior to the commencement of the teaching period.
You must either have successfully completed the following subject(s) before starting this subject, or currently be enrolled in the following subject(s) in a prior study period; or enrol in the following subject(s) to study prior to this subject:
Please note that your enrolment in this subject is conditional on successful completion of these prerequisite subject(s). If you study the prerequisite subject(s) in the study period immediately prior to studying this subject, your result for the prerequisite subject(s) will not be finalised prior to the close of enrolment. In this situation, should you not complete your prerequisite subject(s) successfully you should not continue with your enrolment in this subject. If you are currently enrolled in the prerequisite subject(s) and believe you may not complete these all successfully, it is your responsibility to reschedule your study of this subject to give you time to re-attempt the prerequisite subject(s)
To enrol in this subject you will need to pass UNE-COSC120 subject. Please note as UNE results are released after the close of enrolment date, your enrolment into this subject will be withdrawn if you do not receive a satisfactory result for UNE-COSC120. UNE-COSC220 requires a knowledge of, and programming experience with, a high level programming language. Experience with the use of the Linux/UNIX operating system is highly recommended.
- Equipment requirements - Headphones or speakers (required to listen to lectures and other media) Headset, including microphone (highly recommended) Webcam (may be required for participation in virtual classrooms and/or media presentations).
- Software requirements - It is essential for students to have reliable internet access in order to participate in and complete your units, regardless of whether they contain an on campus attendance or intensive school component.

Textbook information is not available until approximately 8 weeks prior to the commencement of the Teaching period.
Students are expected to purchase prescribed material.
Textbook requirements may vary from one teaching period to the next.
Modern software development is highly collaborative. Teams of developers work together to take software from conception into production and continue to develop the software based on feedback from its use. This introduces a number of engineering challenges, as teams must ensure that the program works and is well designed, even while it is being modified by many people at once. Many of the software engineering practices and tool chains that are core to a developer's work are designed to support the collaborative nature of programming. In this subject you will work in teams to develop different features of a class-wide development project, to learn how software engineers design, build, deploy, and modify large programs together. Introducing you to key concepts, including distributed version control, continuous integration, deployment, and delivery practices, as well as agile development and software design, the unit will help you to hone invaluable applied skills.
