Need More Software Engineers? Teach Thinking Skills Better

Need More Software Engineers? Teach Thinking Skills Better | Software Engineering Education | Scoop.it

By Harry Keller Editor, Science Education We’ve seen much hue and cry about our schools being unable to meet the demand for “computer scientists.” What industry really misses is software engineers. The term “computer scientist” is misleading because the skill set of those who write computer programs is one of engineering. Science expands the boundaries of knowledge about the natural universe. That’s why just about every computer scientist worthy of the name is in academia.

Computer Science Education | SourceForge Community Blog

Today’s post by Olivia Leonardi, a writer for an online resource offering information about computer science certification and education, explores the growing demand for advanced computer and web skills in today’s economy as well as alternative avenues of education, for those who aren’t interested in entering the Ivory Tower. The post looks to expand upon, and give some clarity to, an education directory found on SourceForge. These resources are increasingly necessary in an industry that is experiencing a fundamental shift in education and training as self taught programmers eclipse those that went through formal academic channels to earn their stripes.

JMPInline: The Demand For Computer Science Graduates

Dimitris Dranidis's insight:

Trained computer programmers are needed now more than ever. Modern society has experienced an exponential growth of technology that has revolutionized the economy and the workforce and the education system is struggling to keep up. Based on current figures, there are simply not enough individuals who have been properly trained to design and implement these various programs. However, this deficit may improve as a result of web-based programs that allow students to bypass brick-and-mortar university studies, most of which are extremely competitive and drop the majority of students who apply to them, and learn various aspects of computer programming online. Often times, for free.

The Growing Deficit in Computer Science Education : TaxoDiary

In our increasingly globalized economy, many career paths that seemed to offer security are today only offering uncertainty to recent graduates. Students graduating with degrees in teaching, law, and even human resources or business are finding stiff competition and few opportunities. Even in our stubbornly weak economy, job growth in computer science fields has continued steadily; yet even as computer usage becomes ingrained in nearly every facet of modern life, many graduates find themselves ill-equipped to take on the requirements of technology-based jobs.
