Abstract

Motorola requires a skilled software engineering work force to accommodate the growing importance of software within our products and our corporation. The current computer science curricula at most universities do not prepare students to develop industrial strength software and little is available in the way of continuing professional development. Consequently, Motorola has begun a major initiative to develop and deliver software engineering training. This paper discusses Motorola's effort to establish the training needs of its software engineers and the results of that effort. It provides conclusions from the ongoing investigation of other major companies' software engineering training. It contrasts industry-university relationships in the US, Japan, and Europe. Finally, it discusses the establishment of Motorola-university training programs in the United States, Israel, and Japan.
