The Software Engineering Research Group

SERG


Software engineering is concerned with methods and techniques for building high quality software systems. This not only includes software construction, but also requirements analysis, design, system integration, testing, deployment, and making changes to software systems after their first release.

Mission

The mission of the Delft Software Engineering Research Group is

  1. to develop a deep understanding of how people build and evolve software systems;
  2. to develop novel methods, techniques and tools that advance the way in which software is built and adjusted; and
  3. to offer students an education that prepares them to take a leading role in complex software development projects.

Teaching

The educational activities of the Delft Software Engineering group cover courses in the TU Delft bachelor in software technology and master in computer science. Courses we teach include programming, software engineering, testing, embedded systems, real time systems, and so on. Several members of the educational staff have won the "teacher of the year" award. Within the MSc program, we offer a software engineering specialization, which aims to equip students with knowledge of modern software development approaches and their underlying principles, as well as of recent advances in software engineering research. Each year, 15-20 students complete their masters thesis within this specialization.

People

The group employs approximately 20 people (depending on the completion or initiation of projects), comprising full, associate, and assistant professors, lecturers, postdocs, and PhD students. The group is led by prof. dr. Arie van Deursen

SERG is part of the department of Software Technology, faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, and Computer Science, Delft University of Technology, and a member of the research school IPA.
