    The student project is a key component of a software engineering course. What exact goals should the project have, and how should the instructors focus it? While in most cases projects are artificially designed for the course, we use a deployable, realistic project. This paper presents the rationale for such an approach and assesses our experience with it, drawing on this experience to present gui... View full abstract»

    The S&P 500 isn't what it used to be: in 1930, companies on that list could expect to remain there for 75 years; today the average tenure is 15 years. In 1950, profits earned by the S&P 500 companies was 18% of US GDP; in 2000 it was only 6%. The very concept of innovation as a competitive advantage is increasingly contradicted by financial and economic metrics, not to mention a wide range... View full abstract»

    Software engineering skills are critical for students seeking careers as software developers. However, academic course content often fails to teach practical, "real-world" software engineering as it is done in large organizations. Further, the proclivities of the current generation leave students disinclined to the disciplines of process and quality. Academics seldom use the team software process ... View full abstract»

    In 1989 the professional masters of software engineering (MSE) program at Carnegie Mellon initiated a new approach to graduate level software projects: the software development studio. In 2002 the studio concept was first exported under a cooperative program to teach software engineering at an international partner university. However, CMU quickly determined that student projects, at this partner,... View full abstract»

    This study identifies the places where software assurance knowledge best fits with the elements of a standard software engineering curriculum. This is useful because there is currently no common understanding of the places in a traditional software engineering curriculum where software assurance should be taught. It would appear that the recommendations of the DHS CBK can be justified as a basis f... View full abstract»
