It’s an interesting discussion, because there are a lot of different ideas regarding the same theme.

To me, Software Engineering is a discipline because of all of the things that you need to learn in order to create a great development of a software. I think that it’s important to spend a good time studying, not just in a classroom, but in the outside. Before creating a really good software program, it’s a lot of work behind it; investigation, planning and processing the whole ideas that came up, deciding, etc. A complete Software Engineer needs to have an excellent process in order to be great in what he or she is doing.
