  • Abstract

    Fundamental issues of software engineering education are presented and discussed in the context of undergraduate programs. Included are discussions of the definition of software engineering and its differences from computer science, the need for undergraduate software engineering education, possible accreditation of undergraduate programs, and prospects for professional certification and licensing of software engineers. The objectives and content of an undergraduate program are described, as are strategies for the evolution and implementation of such programs. An appendix presents a report on the 1989 SEI Workshop on an Undergraduate Software Engineering Curriculum.
