Abstract

The world wide web is emerging as a means for delivery of software services. As these software services continue to increase, such will the software development environments increase on the web. This paper addresses one offering of a two semester course sequence on the development of an industry standard software engineering project, which is primarily a capstone to an undergraduate degree program in computer science. The paper begins with background on the undergraduate computer science degree program and a discussion of software engineering tools and web-based development. An undergraduate course project on an ANSI/IEEE 830-1993 web-based software requirements tool is described in the paper. The course projects are described from the standpoint of the software products, development methods, and project management. Future directions are discussed in the context of building a web-based environment of software tools to support software engineering standards.
