Israel Aircraft Industries has recently been conducting a novel six-month intensive course to retrain practicing engineers to become software engineers working on embedded computer systems. The first course was concluded in January 1982 and the second course began in November 1982. This paper describes the objectives, educational philosophy, course content, and practical experience of the first course. It also describes how the second course was modified as a result of the lessons learned from the successes and failures of the first course.
