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 20,000 online students, UNE is the 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.

Modern software development is highly collaborative. Teams of developers work together to take software from conception into production, and continue to evolve and develop the software based on feedback from its use. This introduces a number of engineering challenges, as the teams must ensure that the program works and is well designed even while its design and code are 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 this collaborative nature of programming.
In this subject, students 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. The project introduces continuous integration, deployment, and delivery practices, as well as lean and agile software development.
