Computer Science Education in Japan

Bush, M. E. (2004). Computer science education in Japan. CACM, 47(8), 23-26.

public or private
Public or Private?
  • Over 70% of university students attend private universities
  • Over 90% of college students attend private colleges
  • By comparison, less than 30% of U.S. undergraduates are in private universities
  • How does the funding affect the education?
computer science education
Computer Science Education
  • First introduced in 1970
  • Over 130 undergraduate programs
  • Over 100 postgraduate programs
  • Until 1997, mostly hardware focus

student culture
Student Culture
  • Relatively homogenous
  • Uniform level of knowledge in math and physics due to entrance exams
faculty culture
Faculty Culture
  • Largely ex-students of departments
  • Usual arrangement: lab with about 20 students
  • Mix of Ph.D., master’s, and final-year project students
  • Collaborative atmosphere
ipsj milestones in software engineering
IPSJ Milestones in Software Engineering
  • Structured Programming
  • Use of tree structures for processing files
  • Solution of a problem in concurrent programming control
  • Programming semantics for multiprogrammed computations
  • An axiomatic basis for computer programming
  • A relational model of data for large shared databases
  • Program development by stepwise refinement

what may need to change
What may need to change?
  • Curriculum
  • Educational methods
  • Credit system
  • Degrees
  • Quality level
  • Methods of evaluation
environmental changes
Environmental Changes
  • Recession and reduced employment
  • Shrinking population of student ages:2M (1994) -> 1.5M (now) -> 1.19M (2012)
  • Japan Accreditation Board for Engineering Education (JABEE) established 1999, working with IPSJ on inspection and accreditation of specific courses
