At present, a trial software engineering accreditation system is being applied in Japan. In the first part of the paper, we give a brief overview of the standard curriculum model that is followed by most computer science programs in Japanese universities today, and the current status of the accreditation systems now being applied to them. In the second part, we report on the way in which we have tried to bridge the gap between industrial needs and undergraduate education in software engineering. Our plan for the trial software engineering accreditation system now being applied to one of these software engineering programs is outlined. In the last part of the paper, our reports to build a body of knowledge for software engineering education are summarized.
