Abstract

This paper describes how the Software Engineering Body of Knowledge (SWEBOK) can be used as a guide to assess and improve software engineering courses. A case study is presented in which the guide is applied to a typical undergraduate software engineering course. The lessons learned are presented which the authors believe are generalizable to comparable courses taught at many academic institutions. A novel approach involving large-scale software project simulation is also presented a way to overcome some of the course deficiencies identified by the guide.
