Degree Programs and Principles of Software Development

ACM has expressed concern over the lack of emphasis on the principles of software development in the computer science and engineering degree programs. CACM January 2006 issue has identified the following deficiencies :

  1. current emphasis is on popular details and not on the basic principles

  2. education about computers limited to Web development

  3. topics are taught with a very narrow perspective

  4. important areas of discipline like real time and embedded systems are ignored

  5. lack of sense of professional responsibilities
