Process Management for ICT Engineering





Offered by

ICT Engineering




Project experience from semester projects and internship.

Main purpose

The main purpose of the course is to provide students with the qualifications needed to understand the CMMI model and be able to transfer the CMMI level 1-2-3 knowledge into practical use in a project.


​After successfully completing the course, the students will have gained knowledge about: 

How to ensure quality in projects
How to improve your project performance
How to handle change management in a project.


​After successfully completing the course, the student will be able to:

Apply techniques and results from Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) to solve challenges in project processes
Apply techniques and results from Lewin model to handle change management in project
Apply "How to break software" to prevent making mistakes in your project
Be able to describe and make use of testing concepts
Use of terminology to kick-start Bachelor project.


​To complete this course the students must make hand-in:

Requirement Specification - IEEE 830 standard" document for a project
Test Specification - IEEE 829 standard" document for a project
Project relations to CMMI model" document for a project.


Teaching methods and study activities

​Activities alternate between theory, self‐study, group work, exercises and hands‐on experiments. 

Additional information:
Required workload for students is estimated at (27,5*5 ECTS) 137,5 hours where approximately two thirds are self‐study, including exercises.

Additional information


Capability Maturity Model Integration ﴾CMMI﴿ is a process improvement approach that helps organizations improves their performance. CMMI can be used to guide process improvement across a project, a division, or an entire organization.

CMMI in software engineering is a trademarked process improvement approach that provides organizations with the essential elements for effective process improvement.

According to the Software Engineering Institute ﴾SEI, 2008﴿, CMMI helps "integrate traditionally separate organizational functions, set process improvement goals and priorities, provide guidance for quality processes, and provide a point of reference for appraising current processes."
