Software Engineering

Maximising software quality and reliability by researching software development and improving software testing.

The research field of software engineering focuses on maximizing the quality of software: The elegance, stability, testability, efficiency, and the security of the software system. Many systems fail on one or more requirements when it comes to either of the quality criteria. The overall goal of the research in this field at Simula is to provide excellent solutions that will improve the testability and security of these systems. 

At Simula, the research groups within software engineering focus on the development of tools and methodologies for the validation and verification of large-scale systems, thereby aiming to ensure greater systems stability.

The Certus Centre for Software Validation and Verification

The Certus Centre formally started operations 1 October 2011 with status as a Centre for Research-based Innovation. Certus is financially supported by the Research Council of Norway, and the main areas of expertise are variability testing, modeling highly configurable systems, and testing data-intensive systems.

Manual testing of large-scale data systems is expensive and inefficient, and the failures of these systems are costlier still. Developing automated testing for large-scale software systems significantly improve their robustness, thereby reducing the cost and the risk of failure, both of which can have wide-spread societal impact.

Simula's research activity on scientific computing is based at Fornebu.
