Software Dev Cycle As Part of CS Curriculum?

JVolkman Re:What is computer science? (431 comments)

You are not mistaken. My alma mater does this, and I graduated from the latter (SE). While my computer science peers were taking
Operating Systems and Cryptography, I was taking Software Architecture, Software Engineering Process and Requirements and Specifications. There was overlap, of course, and I took many CS courses. I also took CE courses, Human Factors courses, etc.
