  1. Item 3.3 Attachment Software Engineering Consortium Vancouver, British Columbia September 29, 2007

  2. Software Engineering Consortium • Purpose • Members • NSPE Board Action • Consortium Actions • Strategy

  3. Software Engineering Consortium • Purpose • Resolved the apparent disagreement among the stakeholders • Develop tools, resources, and strategy to implement licensure of software engineers

  4. Software Engineering Consortium • Members • IEEE (USA, CS PPC, CS Wireless) [4] • NSPE (PEI, L&QP, Facilitator) [5] • TBPE (BOD, Staff, SWETF) [3] • NCEES (Exam Development) [2] • Delaware BPE Member [1]

  5. NSPE BOD Actions • July 28, 2007 • Endorsed the actions of the SwE Summit • Resolved to support the path forward in licensing SwE • September 29, 2007 • Update report on progress to date • Current view of path forward • No BOD action at this time

  6. Software Engineering ConsortiumActions • Achieved Consensus (July 27, 2007) • Software Engineering (SwE) is a separate discipline that can impact public health, safety, and welfare • Software engineering definition • Licensure of SwE should be promoted • Basic path to Licensure • ABET engineering degree • FE Exam • 4 years engineering experience • SwE P&P exam • Specifics remain state-by-state process • Certification by IEEE does not replace licensure • Use NCEES model for exam development • Inclusion of related disciplines in the BOK for SwE (PAKS)

  7. Software Engineering ConsortiumActions • Conference Calls (8/29, 9/17, and 10/1) • Resources • IEEE opened the door to use their certification exams as a starting point • TBPE proposed a cost sharing plan where they would fund one-third of the costs • Tools • Prepared draft of purpose and justification package • Obtained copy of MOA between NCEES and bioengineering consortium • Prioritized state boards for consortium overtures • Developing briefing paper and power point presentation

  8. Software Engineering ConsortiumStrategy • Need 10 Licensure Boards to Certify as to Need for SWE Licensure Process including Exam Development • Consortium will: • Develop talking points and approach individual state Licensure Boards to get the 10 necessary • Work with local members of NSPE and IEEE to approach each state board • Follow the NCEES process • Consortium takes the lead on most of the process • NCEES on the rest

  9. Software Engineering Consortium • Questions
