Undergraduate programs that cover knowledge related to software engineering range from software engineering-specific programs to traditional computer science programs, which might teach some subjects related to software engineering. Software engineering-specific programs have proliferated in countries such as the US, Australia, and the UK. However, this isn't the case in continental Europe. This difference is due largely to the organization of the higher-education systems in those countries. Organizational factors responsible for this difference include the type of accreditation system and whether the government or the higher-education institution defines the syllabus.
