Software Engineering Licensing and Certification

a workshop delivered at CRA's Conference at Snowbird 2000
July 11, 10:30 am - noon

The computer science community is facing a plethora of issues related to the credentialing of software engineers. The professional societies, several state legislatures, and the academic community are all deeply involved. This workshop will lay out the basics of these complex issues and describe some of the reasoning behind the different opinions. It will also provide an opportunity for attendees to discuss these issues and the consequences that different outcomes might have on the various stakeholders, including faculty, students, companies, governmental agencies, and the public.
