Educating software engineers is a long-standing challenge. This article addresses the issue by examining the overlap between the software engineering educational standards (SE 2004 and GSwE 2009) and one of the most well-known software process improvement models (CMMI-DEV). The resulting data are useful to both industry and academia for improving the software engineering practice. The software industry can take advantage of these results when setting up process improvement goals and training programs, and academia can use the findings to round out software engineering core knowledge in undergraduate and graduate programs.
