Determine that "Software Engineering" is engineering, is an issue that generates discussion in many universities in which, by decades, computer science programs have used the term to describe individual courses and claim it as part of their discipline.

This article analyzed the differences between Computer Science and "Software Engineering" as engineering and is argued the necessity of a program in this last that follow the traditional engineering approach looking for a professional formation of software engineers.
