The Software Engineering Body of Knowledge (SWEBOK), published in 2004, and now under revision, has influenced many software engineering graduate programs worldwide. In 2009, guidelines were published for graduate programs in software engineering (GSWE2009). GSWE2009, now sponsored by both the IEEE Computer Society and the Association for Computing Machinery, strongly rely on the SWEBOK but also recommends specific systems engineering knowledge for students to master. Today, an international team is creating a rigorous Systems Engineering Body of Knowledge (SEBoK) with the help of the IEEE Computer Society and the International Council on Systems Engineering and other professional societies. As it matures, the SEBoK should influence future versions of GSWE2009 and graduate program curricula worldwide. This panel will examine the influence of bodies of knowledge on both the creation of new graduate software engineering programs and the evolution of existing ones.
