Abstract [en]

Most computer science (CS) and software engineering (SE) curricula include some form of SE project with the aim of lowering the gap between CS and SE education and real-world demands in industry. In this paper we briefly discuss and explain our findings of software engineering projects taught at LiU in Sweden. These courses use what we call the ¿tail¿ approach, where student projects are performed at the end of a degree program. We then argue that there are several problems with this approach and sketch an idea where SE projects are an integrated part of a curriculum. Furthermore, pros and cons of this idea, which we call the SE project ¿backbone¿ approach, are discussed and analyzed.
