Organised by Department of Software Engineering, SRM University
'Design with UML Contest'
Date: April 7, 2017
Venue: SRM University
“Designing a Software is both a process and a model. The design process is a sequence of steps that enables the designer to describe all aspects of the software for building. Creative skill, past experience, a sense of what makes "good" software, and an overall commitment to quality are examples of critical success factors for a competent design.”
Department of Software Engineering believes that education is more than classroom learning. It’s very important for the students to understand real world complexities more intuitively, interact with real world objects. With this motto, we organized a contest “Design with UML”, for the students of “School of Computing” on 7th April 10, 2017.
The main objective of the contest was to analyze and evaluate the student design and modeling skills when given a real time problem and their teamwork capabilities. Hence the case studies were modelled by the Corporate Members Ms. Hema G, Manager, Learning and Development and Mr. Karthikeyan Ramanathan, Manager, Learning and Development from Capgemini Technology Services, Chennai who also was the jury to evaluate the best design projects.
The registration was open to all the students of school of computing with a limit to a team of 3 members. On a total there were 33 Teams who participated in the event in two rounds. The prelims was conducted on 5th April 10, 2017, in UB1209 and UB713 from 11:30 A.M to 1:30 P.M.
