AbstractThis article argues that software engineering and engineering are not the same profession, and bases this on a discussion of the senses of the term,"engineering," the differences between the codes of ethics of the two professions, and how software engineering has developed into its own profession. The author then looks at how the profession of engineering might someday merge with the profession of software engineering.
