Software Engineering Lab (SOELA)
Dr. Sergiu Dascalu
In the Software Engineering Laboratory (SOELA), located in SEM 207, research is focused on several areas of software engineering:
In addition, SOELA serves as a research lab for several topics on human-computer interaction such as virtual reality and simulation environments, visual environments, software usability and accessibility, information visualization, and computer-aided education.
- Software engineering approaches and tools in support of scientific and interdisciplinary research
- Requirements specification
- Software architectures
- Software systems
- User interface design
- Component-based software development
- Project management
- Software frameworks and environments
- Software processes
- Database management
- Data processing
- Model and data interoperability
SOELA is equipped to participate in a broad range of multidisciplinary software-intensive research projects, has work places for up to 10 graduate and undergraduate research assistants, and offers facilities for students working on their final year Senior Projects in Computer Science and Engineering.
Funding for SOELA and its projects has been received from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, the College of Engineering, the Office of the Provost of the University of Nevada, Reno, as well as from other intramural (e.g., UNR Junior Faculty Research Awards, UNR International Activities Grant, Instructional Enhancement Grants, Undergraduate Research Awards) and extramural sources (DoD/ONR, NSF, NASA, The National Institute for Systems Test and Productivity, Quadrant One, Inc. Arlington, VA, the University of South Florida/SPAWAR, Bally Technologies, Reno, NV, General Electric, Minden, NV, and PC Doctor, Reno, NV).
A complete list of funded projects developed in SOELA is available on pages 10-13 of Sergiu Dascalu’s CV.
