AbstractTeaching Software Engineering to professional master’s students is a challenging endeavor, and arguably for the past 20 years, Carnegie Mellon University has been quite successful. Although CMU teaches Software Engineering at sites world-wide and uses different pedagogies, the goal of the curriculum -- to produce world-class software engineers -- remains constant. This paper will discuss two of the most mature versions of Carnegie Mellon’s Software Engineering program -- the main campus program and its “daughter program” at the Silicon Valley Campus. We discuss the programs with respect to the dimensions of curriculum, how students work and learn, how faculty teach, curricular materials, and how students are assessed to provide insight into how Carnegie Mellon continues to keep its programs fresh, to adapt them to local needs, and to meet its goal of excellence after 20 years.

Simulation of LTE SignalingSANDU, F.; CSEREY, S.; MILE-CIOBANU, E. (Stefan cel Mare University of Suceava, 2010-05-01)This article aims to present a simulation and emulation software that was developed to simulate the call flows of a LTE (Long Term Evolution) network. LTE is the latest Mobile Telecommunications technology being currently in development and testing phase. The simulator can be used as an e-Learning software, for teaching the procedures and phases of different LTE scenarios. Call flows can be visualized trough the simulation panel, where signaling messages can be run continuously or step-by-step, for the purpose of detailed analysis. The simulator has the capability to generate real signaling packets, that are being sent to a virtual loopback adapter and captured / dissected using the Wireshark software. In this way a whole simulation environment is created that is very useful for teaching the latest mobile telecommunications technology, the LTE (Long Term Evolution) system.
Computer Aided Education Systems in Knowledge Based Society: from SUPER-Test to MULTIMEDIA&amp;OFFICE-TestInforec Association, 2007-01-01This paper analyzes the testing and self-testing processes for the Computer Aided Education System (CAES) SuperTest Package , used at the Academy of Economic Studies of Chisinau, Moldova and recently implemented at the University of Bacau, Romania and Ciprian Porumbescu College, Chisinau. We also discuss here the development of such type of CAES as MULTIMEDIA and MULTIMEDIA&amp;OFFICE Testing Methods - the CAES software - from the Information Society and Knowledge Society point of view.
