The Effects of Education on Students' Perception of Modeling in Software Engineering
— Models in software engineering bring significant potential in improvements of productivity of engineers, and improved quality of the artifacts they produce. Despite this significant potential, modeling adoption in practice remains rather low. Computer Science and software engineering curriculums may be one factor that causes this low adoption. In this study, we investigate the effects of education on students’ perception of modeling. We conducted a survey in three separate institutions, in Canada, Israel, and the U.S. The survey covers various aspects of modeling and addresses students ranging from a first year in undergraduate studies until final years in graduate studies. The survey’s findings suggest that the perception of undergraduate students towards modeling declines as they progress in their studies. While graduate students tend to be more favorable of modeling, their perception also declines over the years. The results also suggest that students prefer more modeling co...
