Abstract
In this paper, a successful and fruitful joint project will be presented. The project joins participants from 9 countries and from 15 universities. Since it started in 2001, this project entitled “Software Engineering: Computer Science Education and Research Cooperation” helped participants to gain excellent, up to date educational material, apply modern teaching methods, exchange experiences with other participants, and work jointly on the further development of lectures, case-studies, assignments, examination questions, and other necessary elements of a course. Project works under auspices of Stability Pact of South-Eastern Europe, and is supported by DAAD. The project started with the creation of a common beginning course in “Software Engineering”, but over time it grew and the number of other courses was developed. Finished almost completely are the courses in “Object-oriented programming”, “Software Project Management”, “Advanced Compiler Construction”, and “Data Structures and Algorithms”, and some other courses are under development. Aside from the educational collaboration, project members also developed good scientific cooperation, and published several research papers.

For the previous 7 years, under the auspices of a “Stability Pact of South-Eastern Europe” and DAAD, a joint project for developing an undergraduate course in “Software Engineering” has been conducted. The intention of the project was to enable a usage of shared materials for software engineering courses at wide range of universities in countries participating in the project. During school year 2004/2005: for the first time the same course; with the same case study; and the same assignments; hav...

During an educational project, where partners from 12 universities of eight countries jointly developed teaching and learning materials, it became necessary to produce language variants of these materials. This process is supported by a newly developed tool. The tool introduces a disciplined and economical strategy to develop multilingual teaching and learning objects and to reduce translation efforts. It keeps translations consistent with the help of an internal dictionary dynamically maintaine...

The intention of the SETT-Net is to enable the usage of shared training and teaching resources for a software engineering course in eight schools and in four countries. The network is completely Web-based. It consists of a centre point at Humboldt University in Berlin and four national centres, in Berlin, Novi Sad, Plovdiv and in Skopje. We present the syllabus, the teaching materials of the joint SE course, the network architecture and its contents.

Im Rahmen des Forderprogramms Neue Medien in der Bildung fordert das BMBF das Vorhaben „MuSofT – Multimedia in der Softwaretechnik”. Dieses Vorhaben soll in den nachsten drei Jahren multimediale Lehr- und Lerneinheiten in die softwaretechnische Lehre einfuhren und insbesondere drei Aspekte der Softwaretechnik-Ausbildung unterstutzen. Im ersten Aspekt wird die objektorientierte Modellierung als eine Folge von Phasen betrachtet, innerhalb deren Software-Produkte schrittweise konstruiert werden. Hi...

Besides learning smaller, individual issues of computer science like certain programming languages, algorithms, techniques, or methods, students are obliged to study and accept some more general subjects, meet introductory versions of problems they will encounter in professional life, and be introduced to matters of larger importance. In this paper, we will present how some of these “commandments” are delivered to students at our institutions, within two courses — one on the final year of underg...

A course on “Software Project Management” created as a part of DAAD project was conducted for the seventh time at the Department of Mathematics and Informatics in Novi Sad during the school-year 2010/11. At the beginning, it has been a part of the “Business Informatics” curriculum, as an elective course for the students of the final semester of studies. After realizing its importance, the course was moved, and became an obligatory subject of the first year of master studies of “Software Engineer...
