Abstract

This report examines the academic substance of software engineering. It identifies the basic research questions and the methods used to solve them. What is learned during this research constitutes the body of knowledge of software engineering. The report then discusses at length what about software makes its production so difficult and makes software engineering so challenging an intellectual discipline.
