COMPUTER 30 The rapid evolution of the computer science and engineering field has placed an enoromous burden on education to keep pace with change. Educators responsible for these programs have long looked to the professional societies for guidance in the educational process. Much confusion exists over the distinction between computer science and computer(More)
PREFACE Members of the IEEE Computer Society and ACM frequently encounter new computer science graduates inadequately prepared to handle the professional responsibilities implied by their degree. This faulty preparation can be traced to institutions lacking the faculty and facilities to support their programs or meet enrollment demands. The Computer Society(More)
High-quality computer science programs may be accredited as long as they meet the spirit of the CSAB criteria. The establishment of the Computing Sciences Accreditation Board, or CSAB,* and the development and implementation of an accreditation program in computer science has caused concern among individuals involved with liberal arts programs. Many who are(More)
At the February 1983 SIGCSE Technical Symposium, the initial version of the minimum guidelines for aceredltation of computer science programs was presented by the ACM IEEE/Computer Society Joint Task Force for Computer Science Program Accreditation. Since that time the guidelines kave been refined, edited, and accepted by the governing bodies of both(More)
In IgBB the Educational Activities Board of the IEEE Computer Society and the Education Board of the Association for Computing Machinery have sponsored a series of two workshops to address the issues involved in the Computing Sciences Accreditation Board (CSAB) program in computer science as it relates to liberal arts colleges. This panel will provide a(More)
A formal proposal for the establishment of an <underline>approval mechanism</underline> is being developed for presentation to the ACM Executive Committee in February, 1982. Some preliminary components of this proposal are: &#8212;A year long study during which materials will be developed, trial visits conducted, and approval parameters identified; (More)
Panelists will discuss Accreditation in the Computing Sciences in general and the status of the program being launched for visitation and accreditation of programs in Computer Science to start during the Fall of 1985. The Representative Directors of the Computing Sciences Accreditation Board who represent ACM and the IEEE Computer Society will outline(More)
