The 2017 IEEE Conference on Software Engineering Education and Training (CSEE&T) is taking place in Savannah, Georgia, in November 2017. Since the first CSEE&T, software engineering education has changed a great deal. In 1986, software engineer-ing education was largely undertaken by industry, with just a few academic software engineering programs in place. Since then, software engineering degree programs have emerged at all levels, and we are seeing increased attention to software engineering specialty areas. Software engineering professionalism initiatives resulted in the certification and licensing of software engineers in a number of countries worldwide.
On the industry side, we are seeing an upheaval in software engineering as we know it. Innovations such as cloud computing, autonomous vehicles, drones, bioengineering, and other initiatives have made for a rapidly changing landscape. Topics such as software assurance, safety, and reliability have become important knowledge areas. As educators, we are challenged to keep up with the emerging trends. We are in a global economy with a software supply chain that can extend across many countries and regions, and each one has its own regulations and laws about safety, security, and privacy. Software engineers change jobs fre-quently, so the value of in-house training is not as clear as it once was. At CSEE&T 2017, we will focus on the changes taking place in the field, discuss our response to them, and form a vision of how to move forward to meet the ever-increasing demand for qualified software engineers.
