$500,000 Grant to Fund Software Engineering Research By Five U.T. Dallas Computer Science Faculty Members
RICHARDSON, Texas (Oct. 24, 2001) - Five faculty members at The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) have been awarded a $500,000 grant for a three-year software engineering study that could lead to vastly lower development costs on large-scale software projects.

The grant was made by the National Science Foundation to the Embedded Software Center at UTD for a research project headed by Dr. I-Ling Yen, associate professor of computer science in the Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science. Yen will be joined in the research by four of her colleagues in the university’s Department of Computer Science - Dr. Farokh Bastani, professor; Dr. Yi Deng, associate professor; Dr. Latifur Khan, assistant professor; and Dr. Edwin Sha, professor.
