The Centre for Software Process Technologies at the University of Ulster is to work with 120 software companies in a Stg£1.5m initiative to make Northern Ireland a global player in software development. The three-year project is partly funded by the Industrial Research and Technology Unit's RTD Centres of Excellence Programme. Its two main objectives will be the improvement of software development processes, using the Capability Maturity Model developed by the Software Engineering Institute at Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh, and the enhancement of the university's research reputation in the area of software engineering and computer science in general. The university already provides 12 academic staff from the Faculty of Informatics to the CSPT and intends to recruit three full-time research staff for this project.
