Adhiparasakthi Engineering College Adopts SWEBOK and CSDA
LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., 17 January, 2011 – Adhiparasakthi Engineering College has signed a memorandum of understanding with Registered Education Provider Purna Career Solutions Pvt. Ltd. to offer IEEE Computer Society software development education programs to APEC students.
APEC’s agreement to offer the Guide to the Software Engineering Body of Knowledge (SWEBOK) and the Certified Software Development Associate (CSDA) programs to students was signed by APEC Principal Dr. S. Jayashri and Mrs. Meenakshi, director of Purna Career Solutions, in the presence of Dr. V. Ramaswamy, APEC dean of Development and Planning, Mr. R. Senthil, APEC vice principal, Mr. A.K. Gnanasekar, convener of the Institute Industry Interaction Cell, Mrs. P. Tamilarasi, IEEE chapter convener for APEC, and other Purna Career Solutions officials.
“We thank the IEEE Computer Society for enhancing our college, globally competing with worldwide institutions for the updated technological and scientific approaches in the world arena. Offering SWEBOK, CSDP, and CSDA credential certification to our students would benefit greatly and substantially boost their placement and career prospects on an international standard," said Dr. S. Jayashri of APEC.
The CSDA, designed for entry-level software developers, is intended to provide undergraduate computer science and software engineering students their first credential toward a solid career foundation as a software development practitioner.
The Computer Society’s Certified Software Development Professional (CSDP) certification is intended for mid-career software development practitioners. The CSDA and the CSDP are the first two certifications that conform to the ISO/IEC 24773 standard, which stipulates methods of certifying software engineering professionals worldwide.
SWEBOK is the foundation for both certifications. Software practitioners worldwide participate in the Guide’s development to ensure that it captures established traditional practices recommended by many organizations. The SWEBOK Guide uses a rigorous process that includes successive levels of review.
As part of IEEE’s India Initiative, the IEEE Computer Society is now extending its benefits to Indian technical institutions, especially the faculty and students of computer science, software engineering, information technology, and software applications.
