Panel discussion: Industry requirements for academic and continuing education programs in software engineering
How well are graduates of university programs in software-related disciplines stacking up against industry expectations? How well prepared are such graduates to help solve real-world business problems? Are industry calls for “practical” skills too myopic, or are the emphases of academic programs irrelevant to the demands of industrial-strength software development? While not claiming representativeness, panel members identified what they see as current and emerging skill requirements, technical and otherwise, for successful software development in their fields; discussed ways in which existing deficiencies in these areas might be addressed through more extensive university-industry collaboration; and assessed the efficacy of software-engineering emphases in academic and continuing education programs. Position papers were distributed by the panelists at the conference.
