Chair of Software Engineering

The Chair of Software Engineering is headed by Prof. Dr. Samuel Kounev. Our research is aimed at developing novel methods, techniques and tools for the engineering of dependable and efficient software systems. Our major focus areas include: software design, modeling and architecture-based analysis; systems benchmarking, monitoring and experimental analysis; and autonomic and self-aware systems management. Our research is inspired by the vision of Self-Aware Computing Systems, designed with integrated online prediction and proactive self-adaptation capabilities, used to enforce quality-of-service requirements in a cost- and energy-efficient manner.
