Software Engineering Education: The Synergy of Combined Research and Teaching (bibtex)
by , , , , , , ,
Abstract:
Teaching software engineering is a sumptuous task. In particular, practical software engineering courses require a lot of experienced teaching staff, who are, as a result, kept away from research projects. In this paper, we report on a software engineering course using a large interdisciplinary project from current research. This way, the students were challenged by an interesting industrial strength task. In turn, we obtained students who were well-skilled for joining the research projects. What is more, the software developed during the software engineering course immediately contributed to the research project. Altogether, the additional expenses spent on teaching did not only improve the quality of teaching, but also paid back to the research project.
