About these proceedings


This volume combines the proceedings of the 1987 SEI Conference on Software Engineering Education, held in Monroeville, Pennsylvania on April 30 and May 1, 1987, with the set of papers that formed the basis for that conference. The conference was sponsored by the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) of Carnegie-Mellon University. SEI is a federally-funded research and development center established by the United States Department of Defense to improve the state of software technology. The Education Division of SEI is charged with improving the state of software engineering education. This is the third volume on software engineering education to be pub­ lished by Springer-Verlag. The first (Software Engineering Education: Needs and Objectives, edited by Tony Wasserman and Peter Freeman) was published in 1976. That volume documented a workshop in which educa­ tors and industrialists explored needs and objectives in software engineering education. The second volume (Software Engineering Education: The Educational Needs of the Software Community, edited by Norm Gibbs and Richard Fairley) was published in 1986. The 1986 volume contained the proceedings of a limited attendance workshop held at SEI and sponsored by SEI and Wang Institute. In contrast to the 1986 Workshop, which was limited in attendance to 35 participants, the 1987 Conference attracted approximately 180 participants.
