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.
