Abstract : We propose to plan, develop, and bring about the first offering of, a two-course sequence in software engineering, emphasizing Ada as design and development language. The courses will become part of an undergraduate computer science curriculum. The first of the two courses will be a new course at Marshall University -- entitled Software Design and Development with Ada (ADDA). It is envisioned as a junior or senior level course, and will require as a prerequisite a course in concepts of programming languages, which at MU is CIS 320 Programming Languages. CIS 320 will be enhanced to emphasize Ada as an example language, and will require that at least one sizeable program be developed in Ada. In the early offerings of the new SDDA course, it will be necessary to emphasize the syntax and semantics of Ada, due to the expected lack of preparation of the students.
