What is the difference between a degree program in Computer Science and Computer Engineering? How about Information Technology and Information Systems? And where does Software Engineering fit in the mix? Those are questions facing thousands of students considering degree programs around the world. Often the advice they get is an inaccurate as it is well intentioned. But where do you go for answers?The ACM, working with the Computer Society of the IEEE, has an answer. They have released a report called Computing Curricula 2005 – The Overview Report which covers undergraduate degree programs in CE, CS, IS, IT and SE. And that is about all the alphabet soup that the average student is going to run into.
Who needs this document? Anyone who advises students who are looking into a degree in the computing sciences. That means guidance counselors, computer teachers, parents and anyone else who hears the question “I love computers, what should I major in?” In fact I think you should ask the guidance people at your local high school if they have a copy and if they don’t make sure they get one.
