A Proposed Curriculum for a Masters in Web Engineering
To address the significant technical demand for trained Web Engineers, and to raise the current state of the practice of Web Engineering, a Master's level degree program in Web Engineering is proposed. The most significant research disciplines for Web Engineering are Network Engineering, Software Engineering, Databases and Storage Systems, and Hypermedia. Important aspects of these disciplines are distilled into key knowledge areas for Web Engineering. A curriculum organization is proposed that consists of coursework that covers the key knowledge areas, along with a multi-semester Web design project that synthesizes and applies this knowledge on a real-world Web application. The aim of the paper is to begin a dialog on the characteristics and aims of graduate-level Web Engineering degree programs.
