This paper reports on a two-term workshop taught as part of a master's degree in computer science. Lectures on software engineering (SE) methods, major issues in project management and work organisation accompany the workshop. The organisational framework, SE course schedule and contents aim at meeting industrial needs with limited personnel and technical resources, while maintaining good academic standards. Teaching project management in parallel with experiencing work organisation in teamwork is a major factor in tailoring SE education towards practical needs. The authors' SE consulting and project management experiences in industry have tuned the course priorities to caution with `latest' methods or tools, focus on experiencing roles in SE teams, work organisation at team level as well as at the individual level; and focus on the careful selection of team supervisors
