  • Software Engineering Certifications Redesign (In-Person/Virtual) – 12 September 2023

    IEEE Computer Society is currently in the process of redesigning it’s Software Engineering certification. As such, the society is seeking Subject-Matter Experts for an upcoming in-person Job Analysis meeting in the Computer Society office in Los Alamitos, CA. The Job Analysis meeting will be a two-day meeting starting on September 12, 2023.

    During the meeting, we will be discussing the core knowledge and Tasks required to perform as a professional software engineer. Finding a diverse group of Subject-Matter Experts is vital to this process and these SMEs will be asked to discuss what the basic requirements of what software engineers should know at various levels, what experience is required to perform the job, as well as the testing requirements for the soon to be developed Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 Software Engineering Certifications.

    During the upcoming meeting, this group will identify a draft list of Task and Knowledge statements required to create the certifications, which will then be used in the process of writing and reviewing the question bank for the certifications.

    This is an integral chance for SMEs to assist in the evolution of our industry and assist in the professional growth of the field in general. If you are unable to attend the in-person September meeting, we will be looking for SMEs to participate in remote item writing/review as well as a few more in-person meetings in the coming months. Please let us know if you have any questions and are available to participate in this process.

    Travel and accommodation will be paid by the society.
