Definitions of software engineering:

SOFTWARE ENGINEERING is a discipline whose aim is the production of fault-free software, delivered on time and within budget that satisfies the user's needs. Software must also be easy to modify when those needs change. (definition from the text, by Stephen Schach).

Barry Boehm (chair of International Conference on Software Engineering this year - 1999): Software Engineering is the practical application of scientific knowledge and the production of associated documentation.

IEEE definition: (IEEE = Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers):
Software Engineering is (1) a systematic, disciplined, quantifiable approach to the development, operation, and maintenance of software; the application of engineering to software. (2) The study of the approaches as in (1).
