Abstract: Engineering is a set of disciplines seeking solutions forcomplicated problems and systems that could not be done by individuals. The aim of engineering is to repetitively produce complicated artefacts in an efficient way. This paper describes a set of generic engineering principles and an engineering maturity model. With the engineering principles and model, the nature and status of software engineering are analysed. Interesting findings on what softwareengineering can learn from generic engineering principles are presented. This paper intends to show the nature, status and problems of software engineering, as well as its future trends, based on the comparative studies between the generic engineering principles and software engineering practices.
Keywords: Engineering, software engineering, engineering principles, engineering maturity model,nature of software engineering, cross fertilisation

1. “To Be or Not To Be?”
To many professionals engineering means systematic planing, teamwork, rigorous process, repeatability, efficiency. Software professionals have been arguing the term “software engineering” and its implication for three decades since Frits Bauer invented it in 1968 [1-2]. Yet, still some fundamental questions remain, suchas: a. Is software development an engineering discipline? b. Are software developers engineers or craftsmen? There were completely different assertions and opinions on the above issues of “to be or not to be” that is still confusing the academics, practitioners, and students [3 - 7] in software engineering and in the software industry. In investigating these fundamental problems, the authors...
