PhD Projects in Component-based Software Development

Software engineering is entering a new era: the component era. Component-based Software Development (CBD) represents a paradigm shift in software development: from building monolithic, single-platform, purpose-built-from-scratch systems to constructing assemblies of ready-made components that are platform-independent and supplied by third-parties.

There are projects available on many CBD topics. The following are some examples:
