A Study of Information Systems Programs Accredited by ABET in Relation to IS 2010
Feinstein, David; Longenecker, Herbert E., Jr.; Shrestha, Dina
Information Systems Education Journal, v12 n3 p76-84 May 2014
This article examines the relationship between ABET CAC standards for undergraduate programs of information systems and IS 2010 curriculum specifications. We have reviewed current institution described course work that identifies course structures from accredited IS programs. The accredited programs all matched the expectations expressed in ABET CAC standards. However, we found that IS 2010 failed to meet ABET CAC specifications. In order to attempt to resolve this obvious disconnect, we compared ABET CAC to IS industry standards and to IS 2010 specifications. It is our finding that ABET CAC compares well with industry expectations, whereas there is a disconnect in comparing IS 2010 and ABET/CAC and industry specifications.
