Computing Curricula

  • The Joint Task Force for Computing Curricula 2005

    A cooperative project of

    The Association for Computing machinery (ACM)

    The Association for Information Systems (AIS)

    The Computer Society (IEEE-CS)

    30 September 2005


Purpose of report

Purpose of Report

  • This report provides an overview of the different kinds of undergraduate degree programs in computing that are currently available and for which curriculum standards are now, or will soon be, available.

  • Teachers, administrators, students, and parents need this report because computing is a broad discipline that crosses the boundaries between mathematics, science, engineering, and business and because computing embraces important competencies that lie at the foundation of professional practice.

  • Computing consists of several fields, and many respected colleges and universities offer undergraduate degree programs in several of them such as computer science, computer engineering, information systems, information technology, software engineering, and more. These computing fields are related but also quite different from each other. The variety of degree programs in computing presents students, educators, administrators, and other community leaders with choices about where to focus their efforts.

  • Several questions naturally arise. What are these different kinds of computing degree programs? How are they similar? How do they differ? How can I tell what their names really mean? Which kinds of programs should our local college or university offer? And so on. These are all valid questions, but to anyone unfamiliar with the breadth of computing, the responses to these queries may be difficult to articulate. This report may help to provide some answers.


Definition of it

Definition of IT

  • Information Technology (IT) in its broadest sense encompasses all aspects of computing technology. IT, as an academic discipline, focuses on meeting the needs of users within an organizational and societal context through the selection, creation, application, integration and administration of computing technologies.
