The architecture of a software system describes the key components of the system, their relationships and structure, and the behavior and dynamics of their relationships and structure. This seminar presents and discusses the following key aspects of software architecture:

  • Basic building blocks and relationships
  • Software architecture description languages
  • Software architecture styles and patterns
  • Libraries, frameworks, and platforms
  • Formal as well as de-facto industry standards
  • Noteworthy systems and their architectures
  • Non-technical criteria in software architecture
  • Tools for software architects
  • The role and function of the software architect This course has two parts:
  • A traditional seminar part: Students pick a topic and present about it in class. We then discuss its content.
  • A multimedia-based part: Every session we watch a video and discuss it in class. For more information see
