About

The mission of the Software Engineering research unit is to increase the reliability and usability of real-world systems of which software is key.

These are ubiquitous in everyday life, for instance including autonomous transportation, cyber-physical production, smart grid, secure communication, modern banking or health-care systems. To this end, we devise and evaluate both theoretical foundations as well as practical methods and tools for designing, developing, validating, and deploying such systems. In the process, we aim to increase productivity of novice programmers, experienced software developers, and teams of multi-disciplinary system engineers.

The four pillars supporting our research are:

  • Program analysis, including automated test generation, static analysis, and software verification, applied to different domains, such as traditional software, smart contracts, and machine-learning models;
  • Empirical software engineering and machine learning for helping developers and data scientists detect and debug non-functional issues in their code as well as discrepancies between development and production environments;
  • Quality analysis of models against specifications, tests, or natural language, and process improvement for systems engineering through modeling multi-disciplinary system dependencies as a foundation for effective team collaboration;
  • Computer-science education, with a particular focus on identifying the root cause of common mistakes, such as syntax errors or exceptions, enabling algorithmic thinking and enhancing understanding.

The research Unit Software Engineering is part of the Institute of Information Systems Engineering.
