About the Webinar:

One way to develop standards professionals is by having professional graduate students involved in the application and improvement of international standards. At the École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS), a 7,500-student engineering school of Montreal, International Software Engineering Standards are introduced and used in Software Quality Assurance and Software Process Improvement courses and industrial projects conducted by professional graduate software engineering and IT students. A project to adapt ISO/IEC 29110 to the teaching of software development in a technical college is discussed. This webinar presents the results of a study that shows support for the need to educate the next generation of standards professionals to embrace standards initiatives.
