FRE-GY 6861 Financial Software Engineering

1.5 Credits
This financial lab requires students to publicly participate in a large software project. This participation could take the form of innovation, such as contributing to an open-source financial software project with the contributions being accepted and committed to the main branch, or invention, such as publishing a stand-alone library or package for a programming language commonly used in financial applications, or pure entrepreneurship, such as the development or updating of a brand-new industrial strength financial software application. As the students work on their project, this course will focus on important software engineering considerations specifically as they apply to the real-time world of financial projects, such as formalized procedures for revision control and bug tracking and other proven methods of software management in a fast-paced financial and business environment.

Prerequisite(s): matriculation into a graduate program sponsored by the Department of Finance & Risk Engineering, or permission of the Department
