Division of Software Engineering


Division of Software Engineering (DSE) is placed at School of Innovation, Design and Engineering  (IDT) at Mälardalen University (MdH). It is also part of Mälardalen Research Real time Center (MRTC), and the PROGRESS Centre for Predictable Embedded Software Systems. Division of Software Engineering is also active member of Swedish Software Engineering Network SESweden.

The mission of the Division of Software Engineering is to provide education in all relevant aspects of Software Engineering, and research in Systems and software engineering for industrial and embedded systems. To establish world class education and research in this utterly complex area extensive collaboration with industry is required.

Our research is directed to increase the knowledge of software engineering and in particular of industrial software engineering, real-time and embedded systems component-based software engineering, dependable systems, from both theoretical and practical points of view. The research results of the DSE is supposed to be used both at the university and in the industry. At the university, the accumulated knowledge is used for further education in order to prepare the students for new aspects in system development. The industry will benefit with direct implementation of methods and knowledge built up in the research activities and well educated students.

Research Areas:

  • Component-Based Software Engineering
  • Software engineering for real-time embedded systems
  • Software Configuration Management
  • Product-line architectures for real-time systems
  • Software Processes
  • Dependable embedded systems
  • Test and Verification
  • Legacy systems modelling
