CE2016 Update (Panel Discussion, ECE Division)The panel will discuss the current state of the update the 2004 document titled“Curriculum Guidelines for Undergraduate Degree Programs in Computer Engineering,”also known as CE2004. The presenters are members of the steering committee leadingproduction of the new “CE2016” document and represent the ACM and the IEEEComputer Society (IEEE-CS). They will summarize the new and refactored areas, discussthe additional focus on learning outcomes, and engage participants on ways of improvingthe report so that it reflects the state-of-the-art of computer engineering education andpractice that is relevant for the coming decade.GoalsThe goals of this session are to present the work of the CE2016 steering committee, tosolicit suggestions for improvement through audience participation, and to share resultswith the professional community.Session topicsThe revisions work has been underway for nearly four years and draws on a large surveyof faculty and industry and several conference presentations, beginning with SIGCSE’12and including FIE’12 through FIE’14. Topics such as information security receive muchmore attention in the revised document, while other topics have decreased in emphasis.The document provides a greater emphasis on defining the scope of the various CEknowledge areas (KAs) and on providing detailed learning outcomes within eachknowledge unit (KU).Agenda0:00-0:15: Structural overview of CE2016 draft report0:15-0:25: Overview of key areas receiving initial or significantly enhanced coverage: embedded systems, digital systems design, multicore, security, mobile and power aware, software engineering, and verification and validation of computing systems0:25-0:35: Upcoming milestones and ways individuals can contribute to the process0:35-1:05: Small group discussions among the audience participants: Are the revised BOK areas reflective of current and emerging practice? Is the breadth and depth of coverage in the proposed core appropriate for the coming decade?1:05-1:20: Report feedback to all attendees1:20-1:30: Questions and comments from audience participantsAnticipated audienceComputer engineering educators and individuals interested in computer engineeringeducationExpected outcomes or future workThe task force will incorporate the feedback gathered at this special session into the nextdraft of the guidelines document, which will be available for community review.JustificationThe special session format will meet the dual goals of gathering knowledge from thecomputer engineering community and sharing the results of the task force's work inprogress. It is important that IEEE-CS and ACM keep the curricular guidance documentscurrent. Therefore, audience involvement for this presentation is essential and FIEprovides an optimal venue for this important event.
