Computing the Future: A Broader Agenda for Computer Science and Engineering Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This highly readable volume examines: computer science and engineering as a discipline - how computer scientists and engineers are pushing back the frontiers of their field; how CS&E must change to meet the challenges of the future; the influence of strategic investment by federal agencies in CS&E research; recent structural changes that affect the interaction of academic CS&E and the business environment; and specific examples of interdisciplinary and applications research in four areas - earth sciences and the environment, computational biology, commercial computing, and the long-term goal of a national electronic library. The volume provides a detailed look at undergraduate CS&E education, highlighting the limitations of four-year programs, and discusses the emerging importance of a master's degree in CS&E and the prospects for broadening the scope of the Ph.D. It also includes a brief look at continuing education.

Book News Annotation:

A committee of the National Research Council recommends a broader and better-planned research and education agenda for computer science and engineering. Not technical, but addressed to industry insiders.
