Empirical Software Engineering

Mississippi State University


The Empirical Software Engineering group views software engineering as an empirical science. Our goal is to better understand the practice of software engineering through the observation and measurement of human behavior as it relates to software engineering. As such, we conduct human subject studies on various software engineering methods and techniques. In addition we mine and analyze data from existing software artifacts and repositories.
