Hindustan University Joins IEEE Computer Society as Registered Education Provider to
Offer Software Engineering Programs to Students
LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., 29 January 2014 – Hindustan University has joined IEEE Computer Society as a Registered
Education Provider, and will offer IEEE Computer Society software development preparation and training products to
Based in Chennai, India, Hindustan University will deliver IEEE Computer Society's SWEBOK Certificate Program (SCP), and
the Certified Software Development Associate (CSDA) and Certified Software Development Professional (CSDP) credentials
to its students. All three programs aim to raise the skills levels of recipients and further prepare them to join the global
Hindustan University is a university of engineering founded in 1985 by Dr. K. C. G. Verghese as Hindustan College of
Engineering. It was granted university status from the University Grants Commission in 2008 as the Hindustan Institute of
Technology and Science.
The SCP, consisting of four learning modules with 25-plus hours of instruction each, was created to raise a university
student's understanding and proficiency of the 15 Knowledge Areas in the Guide to the Software Engineering Body of
Knowledge (SWEBOK), which provides the basis for IEEE Computer Society software development certifications.
Each completed module will result in a certificate. By completing the four modules, a student will have a solid understanding
of the software development lifecycle. This will give students an excellent foundation as they embark on a career in software
development, and provide a stepping stone to the CSDA certification.
The CSDA, designed for entry-level software developers, is intended to provide undergraduate computer science and
software engineering students their first credential toward a solid career foundation as a software development practitioner.
The CSDP, designed for postgraduate students and mid-career professionals, helps software engineers demonstrate their
commitment to the profession and confirms their proficiency in the software development field.
Hindustan University is planning to adopt the software engineering syllabus defined by the SWEBOK Guide, which conforms
to ISO standard ISO-IEC 24773, into the curriculum of their postgraduate and undergraduate programs, thus upgrading
their standard of education on par with several universities in USA and Europe.
"We are happy that Hindustan University is the first autonomous university in Tamilnadu to come forward to adopt SWEBOK
courses as part of their regular curriculum and train all their students of software engineering," said Harish Mysore, director
of IEEE India Operations. "I heartily congratulate Hindustan University on becoming an IEEE Computer Society Registered
