Our group leader Regina and software consultant Jaqueline were in Mönchengladbach this week for a guest lecture at the Niederrhein University of Applied Sciences (HSNR). On the topic of “Requirements Engineering in Practice”, the trinidat colleagues showed the Bachelor students of the Business Informatics course what is important in the requirements analysis of a software project.
“We want to give the students an insight into professional life and show them what happens when theory from university meets actual practice on the job,” explains Regina. Because in the theory of a requirements analysis, all possible user requirements for individual software are worked out with a high level of detail and then programmed exactly as they are. “In practice, software development is much more direct and pragmatic. Targeted consultations with the decision-makers on the customer side are particularly important,” says consultant Jacqueline. Saving time is a decisive factor here.
The guest lecture by trinidat was well received by HSNR students. This is the third time that Regina and Jacqueline have given the future business informatics specialists valuable insights into the practical side of software development. By the way: trinidat now employs a whole range of female developers, working students and concept developers with a degree from the HSNR.
