Abstract

Currently, software engineering relies and focuses on issues relatively with well-established software development approaches and software process improvement. There is lack of skill that guides students with the knowledge of developing quality software products that meet certain standard in software industry. As a result, software products were being produced and delivered with bugs and complaints were reported that software quality degraded gradually. Previous study indicated that code analysis and testing software alone could not guarantee the quality of the product. Apart from the increase of software complexity, not performing the best software engineering practices was another major cause of software failure. In order to produce good quality software products, the practices need to be highlighted from technical aspects and non-technical aspects such as people, environment and project constraints. To meet the challenges in quality software product, current education in software engineering must aligned with the software quality and certification models. This paper outlines the rationale and method for designing a new quality and certification skill in software engineering curriculum together with the challenges in meeting the needs from industries through alignment of the new curriculum. It presents the new topics of user-centred software certification processes, development of user and management skills in certification and continuous improvement in certification which might be included and needed in a software engineering curriculum.
