dc.description.abstract In the most part, undergraduate students have been participating in research by working on faculty projects through which they primarily contribute to the implementation and testing of algorithms and systems. This paper presents a methodology that focuses on teaching students the skills of doing research. The approach taken is based on integrating a research component into a third-year undergraduate software engineering course. In this particular case, student groups studied a relatively large number of journal papers relating to a specific source software engineering topic in each semester the course was given, generated summaries, came up with ideas for research topics, pursued the research and wrote papers that described their work. We illustrate how the research component was integrated with the other components of the course, namely the software development project and lectures. The paper concludes with an assessment of what students have learned and a summary of the outcomes of the course in addition to the learned lessons. © 2008 TEMPUS Publications.
