1. Background
Nowadays, software plays a central role in almost all aspects of daily life: in government,
banking and finance, education, transportation, entertainment, medicine, agriculture, and law. The
number, size, and application domains of computer programs have grown dramatically; as a
result, hundreds of billions are being spent on software development, and the livelihood and lives
of most people depend on the effectiveness of this development. Software products have helped
us to be more efficient and productive. They make us more effective problem solvers, and they
provide us with an environment for work and play that is often safer, more flexible, and less
confining. Software engineering is a discipline, which involves the specification, design,
construction and verification of large software systems.

Although the field of Software Engineering was established more than 30 years ago, Bachelor
degree programs in Software Engineering in Ethiopia came into existence in the last few years.
According to the GTP (Growth and Transformation Plan) goals and strategies set by the ministry
of Communication and Information Technology, the ministry emphasizes the fact that it will
work extensively towards creating an enabling environment for ICT professionals to be engaged
in innovation, creativity, and research activities. So that the ministry can effectively support GTP
reform to ensure sustainable development, poverty eradication, human resource development,
capacity development and good governance through well developed information communication
technology involvement. Hence, the department of computing has opened a new program in
Software Engineering aiming to produce skilled graduates in the field of Software Engineering to
fill the demand of manpower in the field at national level.

The Software Engineering program was started during the 2012-2013 academic year, with a
