This Lab Course is intended to teach the basic concepts of software project management and development for medical applications. You will be confronted with a brief introduction to software project management concepts such as requirement analysis, software design, coding guidelines and unified modeling language (UML). In addition, topics like software version control, deployment engineering and testing will be explored. You will be assigned a medical software project to apply the mentioned concepts in a real-life scenario with clinical, industrial or research partners.
In this lab course, students work on clinical software projects and find solutions for problems in the field of medical applications. The student's workload should be around 8-10 hours per week for a period of 3 months on the assigned project (10 ECTS course).
Each project is expected to have one contact person (supervisor) who should be available for regular updates or if the student needs any help. In addition, the supervisors are kindly invited to participate in the student presentations (Requirements, Intermediate, Final) taking place at the CAMP chair. Each project supervisor will decide on 50% of the grade based on the student’s performance in the project. The other 50% will be decided upon by the class coordinators, based on the quality of project management and presentation skills of the student.
The project proposal should give a short introduction into the context and describe the most important aspects and expected outcome of the project. Furthermore it should clearly state the required (and optional) skills (programming language, experience with certain libraries etc.).
If you have a suitable project, preferably with a clinical or industrial partner, you are kindly invited to fill out the project proposal template
and send it to Beatrice Lentes
) as soon as possible.
The deadline for proposal submission is Sunday, March 18th, 2018.
This course requires basic knowledge of C++ or similar OO programming language. The concepts of OO programming and other concepts as conducted in the Introduction to CS lecture are assumed.
The schedule is preliminary and still subject to change. Please check the course website regularly!
