This course describes how to develop and use software that is free of imperfections that could cause unsafe conditions in safety-critical systems. Systems engineering and software engineering techniques are described for developing “safeware,” and case studies are presented regarding catastrophic situations that resulted from software and system faults that could have been avoided. Specific techniques of risk analysis, hazard analysis, fault tolerance, and safety tradeoffs within the software engineering paradigm are discussed. Prerequisite(s): EN.605.202 Data Structures.
