Towards the internationalization of curriculum guidelines for undergraduate it degree programs
The computing education community expects updated curriculum guidelines for undergraduate information technology degree programs by 2017. Through the auspices of the Association Computing Machinery, a task group preparing the IT2017 report conducted a self-administered web-hosted international survey of computing faculty members about their four-year information technology degree programs. The current paper’s authors, with the cooperation of the task group, accessed the survey’s almost six hundred responses. The paper examines respondents’ preferences in curriculum content, curriculum configuration, and pathways for student transfer into four-year programs, and English-language computing terms used in program names. We compare responses from the United States with responses from other countries and present findings that could inform the IT2017 project.
