SERU: Software Engineering Research Unit

Faculty of Information and Communication Technology, Mahidol University, Thailand

The mission of our SERU is to improve the quality of software development process and the software products by studying the evolution of software, reverse engineering existing software projects, and trying to understand the developers and the related software artefacts. We are experimenting with several new techniques such as deep learning, code search, and visualisations.

About Us

In our research group, we are interested in the topics involving software engineering. Specifically, our expertises lie in the area of software process improvement, predictive models for software engineering tasks, and static/dynamic software analysis.

The research topics include, but not limited to, the followings:

  • Software process quality and risk monitoring, e.g., ISO29110, agile, CMMI
  • Prediction of risks/delays/components in software projects
  • Code clone detection, code search, and code review
  • Mining software repositories
