CS logoExplore the latest trend in software development and engineering known as Model-Driven Architecture (MDA). The MDA approach unifies and simplifies software modeling and design. Become a valued member of your organization by learning the tools and processes of the MDA software design approach.

Model-Driven Architecture (MDA) can be described as a software design approach for the creation and development of software systems. Model-Driven Architecture supports model-driven engineering of software systems, and provides guidelines for the structuring of specifications, which are expressed as models. It encourages efficient use of system models in the software development process. This course would be beneficial to IT Professionals learning about software systems and design trends, IT organizations and Business Analysts looking to implement an MDA approach for software development, and Software Engineers and Architects looking to learn about system models and MDA tools, standards, and processes.
