Since 1979 he has taught software engineering topics to a wide variety of client companies, including IBM, Hewlett-Packard and NEC. Schach has published more than 90 refereed technical papers in areas such as CASE, software engineering, software testing, software maintenance and the object-oriented paradigm.

The four-hour seminar, which costs $75, will be given as two two-hour lecture discussions, on Tuesday, June 16, and Thursday, June 18 from 4 to 6 p.m. Registration will be limited to 40 participants on a first-come, first-served basis.
