Abstract: In addition to the well-established bottlenecks in scientific computing – hardware and algorithms – CSE currently witnesses a new one: the software. A change in the philosophy of developing simulation programs towards systematic software engineering is painfully required. To help the coming generation of CSE researchers acquire practical skills in software engineering, we extended our CSE master program's curriculum by a structured group software development project as part of a respective honours program. We present results and evaluate the success of this concept for several projects in diverse CSE areas, in particular for two recent projects in fluid-structure interaction and molecular dynamics.
