Requirements Engineering Research Group

The Requirements Engineering Research Group (RERG) in the Department of Informatics at UZH has been active in Requirements Engineering (RE) research and teaching since 1993. RERG is headed by Professor Martin Glinz.

Martin Glinz retired by July 31, 2017 and is now a professor emeritus at UZH. However, he remains active in research, teaching and services; so RERG will continue its activities for some more years.

In teaching, Martin Glinz will continue teaching his Requirements Engineering I and II courses at UZH in HS 2017 and HS 2018. RERG also continues handing out student theses and projects.

RERG is proud of its achievements in research, which, for example resulted in five RE Conference papers and two REJ papers in 2016 and 2017, as well as of its service contributions to the requirements and software engineering community.
