A Web Emphasis in Software Engineering
As software engineering (SE) is becoming increasingly important as a discipline for computing professionals, so is it becoming an increasing emphasis in undergraduate computing education. Also, the World-Wide Web has become a dominant force in the world economy and in the careers of our students; but it has not enjoyed a prominent place in our curriculum for computing majors. Based on some observations about the current CS curriculum as a whole, a number of pedagogical and web-focused changes to a traditional undergraduate SE course are reported. While not necessarily appropriate for all approaches to teaching SE, the focus here may nonetheless be appropriate for departments whose CS curriculum matches the observations presented here.
