The use of Open Source Software (OSS) has grown rapidly within the past decade. Despite the increased importance of OSS in the information technology/Computer Science (IT/CS) field, the OSS has not been sufficiently addressed in the IT/CS education. At this time, the IT/CS curriculum still employs mainly proprietary Software Engineering (SE) methodologies. This discrepancy for OSS skills acquisition creates a knowledge gap in our IT/CS graduates. The gap will reduce our IT/CS graduates current and future employability if the do not acquire the necessary skills to develop and implement OSS. To anticipate this chalenge, the authors propose a framework to combine the advantages and minimize the negative aspects of both OSS and SE environments. The main components of our proposed framwork includes proper introduction to basic OSS skills, formation of diverse skills groups, system development using modularity principles, and using the SE methodology for monitoring.
