ABSTRACT
Based on over 20 years of teaching and research experience, the author provides his assessment of software engineering education. He then builds on the analysis to provide recommendations on how we need to diverge from computer science to increase our impact, gain credibility, and ultimately ensure the success and recognition of our young discipline. A key behind the author's message is that we need to become a true engineering discipline.
INDEX TERMS
