Software engineering educators are continually challenged by rapidly evolving concepts, technologies, and industry demands. Due to the omnipresence of software in a digitalized society, higher education institutions (HEIs) have to educate the students such that they learn how to learn, and that they are equipped with a profound basic knowledge and with latest knowledge about modern software and system development. Since industry demands are constantly change, HEIs are challenged in meeting such current and future demands in a timely manner. This paper aims at analyzing the current state of practice in software engineering education. Specifically, we want to compare contemporary education with industrial practice to build an understanding if frameworks, methods and practices for software and system development taught at HEIs reflect industrial practice. For this, we conducted an online survey and collected information about 67 software engineering courses. Our findings show that development approaches taught at HEIs quite closely reflect industrial practice. We also found that process knowledge is often provided as a by-product in project courses and thus conclude that it could be beneficial to put more emphasis on teaching such development approaches.
