Stage 6 - SDD

Software Design and Development (SDD)

Students are prepared for the HSC course Software Design and Development. Topics covered are:

  • Concepts and Issues in the Design and Development of Software
  • Introduction to Software Development
  • Developing Software Solutions
  • Development and Impact of Software Solutions
  • Software Development Cycle
  • Developing a Solution Package
  • The Interrelationship between Software And Hardware


A major component of the course is the project. A group project is completed in Year 11 and an individual major programming project must be completed in Year 12.


As with all Stage 6 subjects SDD requires a commitment outside of class time. Besides the usual study, SDD projects will require some hours programming, testing and debugging their projects.
