Warwick, RI (PRWEB) January 25, 2007
McCabe Software announces the contribution of McCabe IQ Enterprise Edition to the University of Dayton for use in the software programming curriculum. As part of the McCabe University Program, McCabe's initiative to deliver their products to leading computer engineering programs, the company has licensed their flagship quality management suite to Dr. Barbara Smith, Associate Professor in the University's computer science department.
"My goals as an educator can be simply stated but are challenging to achieve: To give University of Dayton students the background, knowledge and experience necessary to become skilled and successful software professionals," says Dr. Barbara Smith, Associate Professor at the University. "Having access to McCabe IQ will positively contribute to this goal."
"Today's educational institutions are where tomorrow's business leaders are created and nurtured," says David Belhumeur, McCabe Software's CEO. "Professors have gotten by with freeware, shareware or sub par tools, and have done a marvelous job. What might they be able to further accomplish using the same enterprise-level solutions used by industry leaders like Intuit, MasterCard, and Lockheed Martin when they measure the quality and testing of their software applications?"
Dr. Smith initially plans to have undergraduate and graduate students use McCabe IQ in a software testing class, giving them the opportunity to see how the conceptual material presented in the lectures and the course readings is applied in real-world development projects.
"The acquisition of McCabe IQ through the McCabe University Program provides an extremely valuable resource for computing education at the University of Dayton," adds Smith.
