CmpE Events

Tuesday, January 30th

  1. CmpE Seminar: Non-Functional Requirements in Software Engineering
    • Start time: 02:00pm, Tuesday, January 30th
    • End time: 03:00pm, Tuesday, January 30th
    • Where: AVS Conference Room, BM
    • Speaker: Dr. Mohamad Kassab, Penn State UniversityAbstractInthe software marketplace, a place in which functionally-equivalent productscompete for the same customer, non-functional requirements (NFRs) play animportant part in distinguishing between them. In practice, however, NFR'sreceive little attention relative to Functional Requirements (FRs).This is mainly because of the nature of theserequirements which poses a challenge when taking the choice of treating themearlier in the software development. NFRs are subjective, relative and theybecome scattered among multiple modules when they are mapped from therequirements domain to the solution space. Furthermore, NFRs can ofteninteract, in the sense that attempts to achieve one NFR can help or hinder theachievement of other NFRs at particular software functionality. Such aninteraction creates an extensive network of interdependencies and tradeoffsamong NFRs which is not easy to trace or estimate.In this talk, I will introduce an approach formanaging the attainable scope and changes of NFRs, their refinements, and theirinterdependencies.Short Bio Dr. Mohamad Kassab is an assistant professor inSoftware Engineering at Penn State University. He received his Ph.D. and M.S.degrees in computer science from Concordia University in Montreal, Canada. Heholds a B.S. in computer science from the University of Windsor in Canada andB.Eng. in Computer Engineering from the Lebanese American University. Beforejoining Penn State University, he was an affiliate assistant professor in thedepartment of computer science and software engineering at Concordia Universityand a postdoctoral researcher in software engineering at Université du Quebec. With more than 17 years of industrial experiences,Dr. Kassab worked in different roles before establishing his career inacademia, among which: senior quality engineer at SAP, senior associate atMorgan Stanley, senior quality assurance specialist at NOKIA, senior softwaredeveloper at Positron Safety Systems. Throughout his employment experiences hedeveloped a broad spectrum of skills and responsibilities that enabled himto blend the academic research results with existing industrial practices.Dr. Kassab’s research interests include developinga formal, integrated and quantitative approaches, architectural frameworks andtools to modeling and assessing software quality requirements. His researchinterests also include developing IoTs solutions in the healthcare andeducation domains. His research results were demonstrated through a strongpublications record. Dr. Kassab’s taught a variety of undergraduate andgraduate software engineering and computer science courses at Penn State andConcordia University. His teaching activities were rewarded by receiving theTeaching Fellowship Award twice at Concordia University. He was also nominatedfor the 2015 Penn State University Teaching Award. In addition, he supervisedseveral undergraduate and graduate students during their research projects, a positionthat involved instruction in methods of establishing a scientificinvestigation.Between 2014 and 2017 he was also a visitingscholar at Carnegie Mellon University to assist in developing the university’sprofessional software engineering MSIT-SE program within the newly establishedInnopolis University in Russia.
