Software Engineering  Programs Are Not  Computer Science Programs By David Lorge Parnas Presented by Timothy St. John
Background image of page 2
Software Engineering Software Engineering courses have become a source of  contention in many universities. Computer Science departments have resisted the  thought of Software Engineering being a facet of  Engineering. In this presentation I will discuss the authors beliefs of a  separation of the two departments. I will also compare and contrast the two departments. Then finally I will present some of my own beliefs on the  topic Software Engineering are not Computer Science  Programs.

Why do we need a New Type  of Engineer? The increase importance of software. The need for software to be able to integrated  with hardware. The need for a New type of Engineer that is  able to work with other disciplines of  Engineering. Even with this new type of Engineer  there is  still the need for CS professionals.

SE Are Not Just Good  Programmers The term “Software Engineer” is used as a euphemism  for “programmer”. An Engineer is a professional who is held responsible for  producing  products that are fit for use. Software Engineers need to know many things that are  not part of Computer Science. Software is never used in isolation from other  Engineering products.

A Historical Analog As an area of science becomes mature, the educational  institution develop an engineering program. One career is for those who like to design products for  others to use. The other is for those who like to study the phenomena  that interests both groups and extending our knowledge  in this area. Each career path attracts a distinct type of student.

How Does Science Education Differ  From Engineering Education Future Scientists, who will add to our knowledge base  need to learn: 1)     What is true. 2)     How to confirm or refute models of the world.
