Industry often complains that current university curricula fail to address the practical issues of real sofiare development. Thispaper outlines a proposal for an innovative core curriculum for a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science. The proposed core curriculum contains elements of traditional computer science programs combined with sofiare engineering via a team-oriented, hands-on approach to large-scale software development. In addition to traditional lecture/project/exam courses, students are required to take an eight-semester sequence of “Software Factory" courses. Software Factory courses put the students' newly acquired skills to work in a real software organization staffed and managed by all students in the program. Students from all courses in the Software Factory sequence meet simultaneously to fulfill their roles in the sofiare organization. We expect the students will be better-prepared software engineering practitioners afer completing a curriculum that combines tradiiional courses withpractical Software Factory experience.
