An Assessment Framework for Identifying Information Technology Bachelor Programs

  • What is an IT Bachelor program and how can one be identified? The ACM has recommended approved minimum requirements for IT undergraduate curriculum since 2008. ABET has been accrediting programs offering IT majors since 2006. However, IT programs have been hard to identify for several reasons. They are not always titled “Information Technology”. They are housed in various colleges and schools – such as engineering, business, computing, and information science. Also, they may not have associated themselves with ABET or ACM so these programs may not be accredited. We have undertaken research that uses the ACM IT 2008 model curriculum to identify the “fit” between those minimum criteria and published university undergraduate curriculum regardless of the title, college, or professional association of the program. This paper will present the criteria we propose to use as we attempt to identify all the 4-year IT programs in the USA.
