Welcome to the Software Technology Group
Our research is dedicated to developing new technologies that help to construct high-quality software in a productive way. Part of our research is in programming language design and implementation. One key theme underlying our current work is aspect-oriented and component-based software development. The goal is to support developers in clearly expressing the design structure of the systems they build and to enable software construction as an assembly of modular (reusable) services. Another thread of our research focuses on intelligent programming environments that provide means to manage and explore the software space to enable the static analysis of a variety of software properties on the fly including design and coding styles, and for better supporting software comprehension and reengineering.
A good overview to our current research interests provides our research seminar where master students, guests and members of the group present and discuss related research work and results of current work from the group. The seminar is open for interested students and colleagues.
Our teaching focuses on training our students with software architecture/design principles and skills that will guide them in building high-quality modular software. We put strong emphasis in tightly integrating our teaching and research activities by bringing the most recent developments in the area of software engineering into the lectures, seminars, and hands-on training, we offer, and at the same time by actively involving students in our research activities.
Professor Mira Mezini Receives ERC Advanced Grant
Professor Mira Mezini has been honored with the European Union’s best-endowed research award, an “Advanced Grant” of 2.3 million Euros conferred by the European Research Council (ERC). She intends to use the funding for basic research into the programming of software that will be fit for the “cloud.”
- TU Darmstadt has won more than 8M EUR funding for a new competence center European Center for Security and Privacy by Design. Prof. Mira Mezini will be a member of the board of directors of the new center. Dr. Eric Bodden will be establishing his own research group within EC SPRIDE, as a Claude Shannon Fellow.
- Prof. Mira Mezini is PC co-chair of FSE/ESEC 2013.
- Prof. Mira Mezini is PC member of PLDI 2013.
- Andreas Sewe is PC member of Software Composition 2013.
- Andreas Sewe is PC member of PPPJ 2013.
- Dr. Eric Bodden is PC member of OOPSLA 2012.
