Engineering faculties within Australian universities are being asked to explore the feasibility of mounting separate Software Engineering programmes. This paper provides an overview of the background for the development of such programmes, the accreditation requirements imposed and the difference in perception of Software Engineering between the Australian and the United States engineering professions. A survey of the curricula of Bachelor of Engineering (Software Engineering) programmes in Australian universities was undertaken, and the programmes examined from the perspectives of requirements for Australian engineering accreditation and the models for undergraduate education incorporating Software Engineering.
