CCPE Foresees Solution
For Software Dispute
OTTAWA -- A co-operative resolution
to the dispute over the term "software engineering" and how it is being
used in the undergraduate university community may be within sight, the
Canadian Council of Professional Engineers (CCPE) states in a press release
issued April 27.
The independent panel created
last fall to consider and make recommendations on the appropriate use
of the term "software engineering" has received written and oral submissions
from CCPE as well as the Canadian Information Processing Society (CIPS).
It is currently deliberating on the issue, and expects to be in a position
to make recommendations by as early as July. One option being considered
by the panel offers the potential for building on the strengths of both
parties to forge a long-term partnership that will benefit both students
and the public.
CCPE has again expressed its
willingness to work with the panel members and CIPS to arrive at a resolution
which respects the rights and interests of all parties involved.
