Abstract:

Reactions from many colleges and universities throughout the United States indicate that the Computer Science field, as a program of guided institutional study, is in its earliest infancy. Many schools not now offering degrees have plans for programs. Schools already offering degrees are constantly changing, adding and dropping courses, and shifting scope. Comparison is difficult because of a lack of uniformity due to the newness of the science, differences in concept of the field and its objectives, communications difficulties created by the vagueness of the language, and structural problems confronting new or proposed departments making their future status unpredictable.
