Software Engineering

Maximising software quality and reliability by researching software development and improving software testing.

The research field of software engineering focuses on maximising the quality of software: The elegance, stability, testability, efficiency and the security of the software system. Many systems fail on one or more requirements when it comes to either of the quality critera. The overall goal of the research in this field at Simula is to provide excellent solutions that will improve the testability and security of these systems. 

All activity within the research field of software engineering at Simula is concentrated in the Department of Software Engineering, and this research group focuses on the development of tools and methodologies for the validation and verification of large-scale systems, thereby aiming to ensure greater systems stability.
