ACM/IEEE CS Curriculum Mapping Project - An Ongoing Study
This is an ongoing effort to map our curriculum at Loyola University Chicago to the established international guidelines (ACM and IEEE). We are motivated by the following research questions:
Q1: How do our degree requirements for CS, SE, IT, and Cybersecurity majors map to the ACM/IEEE Computing Curricula (and other) guidelines?
Q2: What are the actual learning outcomes in our foundation sequence courses?
Q3: Can generative AI large language/coding models help us to improve teaching of theoretical and practical (programming) topics?
Q4: Can we provide more historical/cultural context to CS students (also with the help of generative AI)?
Although the focus is on how the Loyola University Chicago CS curriculum maps to ACM/IEEE and related standards, our method of analysis may be helpful to others wanting to understand their own institution's CS (and related) curricula.
