USC Center for Software Engineering

The USC Center for Software Engineering was founded in June of 1993 by Dr. Barry W. Boehm for the purpose of providing an environment for research and teaching in the areas of large-scale software design and development processes, generic and domain specific software architectures, software engineering tools and environments, cooperative system design, and the economics of software engineering. Crucial to the success of the Center's efforts are the partnerships created with leading public and private sector organizations through their participation in our CSE General Affiliates' and COCOMO II Affiliates' programs. These organizations help fund the Center's research and in turn benefit from its services and assets.
