Many software engineers (i.e., those that actually program on a daily basis) are unaware of the dedicated sub-field of software engineering researchers (like these from Microsoft) whose mission is to help make the daily grind of writing software better.  While software engineering researchers have historically had limited practical impact, there are some notable companies and tools that were born out of software engineering research, and many brilliant, driven individual researchers who want to have impact.  I hope that raising awareness of this research among software engineers will encourage more feedback to the software engineering research community, ultimately leading to more useful output.

To that end, I'm posting a short 3 minute video that provides a quick overview of a typical software engineering research project at ABB.  I hope this video gives you a better sense of what we're working on, our balance between theoretical and practical impact, and what types of technologies we're investing in. If you're a software engineer we'd love to hear what you think about our research directions, how we could improve, or even just what problems are currently slowing you down.  Feel free to leave comments or even contact me directly.

Being an engineering student I find your website really useful for me for completing my final year projects. After watching the video you provided in this website I got the basics of software engineering project at ABB.
