Gender issues in software engineering education are gaining research attention due to the desire to promote female participation in the field. The objective of this work is to enhance the understanding of female students’ participation in software engineering projects to support gender-aware course optimization. Since 2015, we have investigated the participations of female students in terms of software engineering activities and team dynamics in a software project course that involves a real customer. We found that female students are more active with project management and requirement engineering, while they remain under-represented in highly complex or specific tasks, i.e. architecture work, and user experience design. We found no statistically significant difference in perceived team dynamics between male and female students. Insights on female project activities would facilitate the arrangement of project teams so that learning can be distributed equally across genders.
