This course provides an introduction to the concept of software architecture and its various implementations. Through this course, students have the opportunity to acquire both a theoretical and practical understanding of the different dimensions of a software architecture.


Software is "eating the world", in the sense that it is now ubiquitous in most of our daily activities, e.g., in finding and consuming information or in producing it, in shopping, in entertainment, in mobility, etc. Furthermore, software is often the root of disruptive innovations in business models, making products and services fungible that were not before they were digitized.

By analogy with classical architecture, as the art, science and technology of constructing buildings, software architecture deals with the fundamental structures of software and the disciplines involved in creating these structures. Now, the way software is structured is a key factor in its success and its ability to evolve with technological innovations. In this context, this course covers the following topics, among others:

  • software modularity and separation of concerns
  • communication paradigms and distributed architectures
  • multi-tier architectures and micro-services
  • virtualization and cloud architectures
  • software for mobile devices and connected objects

The course is given in English.


Students are expected to possess basic knowledge of programming and algorithms, typically acquired through a course like Algorithms and Computational Thinking.
