Abstract

The two central parts of the Guidelines are the description of a software engineering body of knowledge and a curriculum model. The body of knowledge presents a high-level organization and description of software engineering that supports effective curriculum design; and the curriculum model consists of a design architecture, a set of design concepts, and curriculum content guidance. We believe that this material and other guidance offered will provide assistance to faculty in the design and development of quality programs in software engineering and related curricula.
