ISTE

Institute of Software Engineering

Software Engineering deals with all issues related to developing, operating and maintaining software. Our institute is composed of the Empirical Software Engineering Group, the Software Lab: Program Analysis, and the Software Quality and Architecture Group.

Empirical Software Engineering (ESE)

Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Stefan Wagner

The Empirical Software Engineering Research Group uses empirical and behavioural research methods to understand real-world software engineering, develop solutions to problems in practice and evaluate these solutions. Our main focus areas are software quality (including testing and analysis), requirements engineering, safety and security, agile and continuous software engineering.

Empirical Software Engineering

Software Lab: Program Analysis (SOLA)

Prof. Dr. sc. Michael Pradel

The "Software Lab: Program Analysis" is a research group that focuses on tools and
techniques for building reliable, efficient, and secure software. To
this end, we work on testing and analysis of complex software systems.
As part of our research, we have contributed to techniques that detected
thousands of bugs in widely used software.

Software Lab: Program Analysis

Software Quality and Architecture (SQA)

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Steffen Becker

The Software Quality and Architecture group deals with methods, languages, and tools to engineer the quality of software systems. Software quality is the level to which a software system meets its requirements beyond the functional correctness, i.e., performance, reliability, safety, maintainability, scaleability, elasticity, cost- and energy-efficiency, etc.  Our methods help software architects, developers, and operators to design systems efficiently to meet their quality reqirements and to help them monitor and ensure them at runtime.
