Problems, Methods and Specialization
November/December 1994 (vol. 11 no. 6)
pp. 57-62

The large aspiration to place the whole of software development alongside the established branches as one more branch of engineering is misconceived. The author discusses how our aspiration should be to develop specialized branches of software engineering, each meriting its own place alongside the specialized established branches.

Index Terms:
software engineering; software development; engineering; software methods; software problems; software specialization; specialized software engineering branches
