We have designed a novel computer science curriculum at the University of Lugano in Switzerland. The curriculum is based largely on software engineering principles. We have been teaching the curriculum since 2004. Following the European standards, the curriculum consists of a 3-year bachelor program and a 2-year master's program. With 6 years of experience, we are in a position to draw some conclusions about the curriculum and offer lessons to others who are interested in designing or evolving a software engineering-based curriculum. The principles apply whether one wants to design a bachelor's curriculum or a master's curriculum. They apply to both US and European systems.
