Unless something is done to include a required amount of reverse engineering
instruction in computer science and software engineering programs of study, new
engineers will remain ill-equipped to work with legacy software systems as well as be
unable to ensure that software is secure and safe to deploy. Most large companies have
existing software systems that have been the underpinning of their business for years. It’s
highly difficult, not to mention cost-prohibitive, to rip and replace mission-critical
software systems in response to the emergence of a new technology. As a result,
organizations are always looking for candidates that can help them understand what they
have and how it can be evolved to interact with the latest technologies. Students and
practicing engineers need reverse engineering skills to be able to help organizations, both
large and small, understand their current technology stack and recommend an integration
strategy for new technologies. Software security issues, such as how the latest virus or
worm infects computer systems, also require extensive reverse engineering knowledge.
Since students and engineers need to learn reverse engineering, instructors need to
be able to teach it to them. At the present time, even experienced computer science and
software engineering instructors may not have enough knowledge of reverse engineering
to teach a course on it. Compounding the problem is the fact that materials for teaching a
course on reverse engineering may be difficult to find in a format that is compatible with
