MDH course elected into Hall of Fame

Nov 29, 2017 | Education Research/Cooperation

​In connection with the CSEE&T conference (Conference in Software Engineering Education and Training), the MDH course "Distributed Software Development" was elected into the Hall of Fame for courses in software development education.


- It feels good! It’s a confirmation that we’ve done a good job, says Federico Ciccozzi, who is responsible for the course at MDH.

It was in connection with the annual conference on software development education, CSEE&T, that the MDH course was elected into the Hall of Fame for courses. The committee behind the decision motivated their choice thus: the course represents “the highest achievement within the field and serves as a model in software development education for what can be achieved and how”.

During the conference, which is one of the most high-ranking in the world regarding software development education, three courses from different universities were elected into the Hall of Fame. Apart from the category for courses, in which MDH was elected, there were a further two categories: “Graduate” and “Undergraduate”.

- It’s really great that we can compete with big universities such as Carnegie Mellon University, the Rochester Institute of Technology and the University of Ottawa, who were also elected, but in other categories, says Federico Ciccozzi.  

The MDH course that was elected in is a part of the Master’s programme in Software Technology and a collaboration between MDH, the Politecnico di Milano university and the FER University in Zagreb. The course is a project course in which students from the three different HEIs work together with projects for companies.

- This is a course that requires a lot of planning since there are three universities involved in it. Being elected into the Hall of Fame makes us even more eager to develop the course, says Federico Ciccozzi.
