Abstract

An analysis of incoming freshmen would reveal that an increasing percentage have been exposed to the micro, a trend which will accelerate as the public schools gear up their computer-literacy efforts. But at present, the range of computer skills of students entering our technology programs - from virtually no exposure to sophisticated hacker - is only matched by the range of skills exhibited by the faculty. So the first point of this paper is to be sure that all technology faculty are using the computer to some degree and in some way. It is not possible to predict how each of your graduates will be using the computer five years from now, only that they will be using it. Therefore it is necessary to give them a taste of the wide range of the computer's facets, and a hearty meal of those facets most likely to be used by your graduates.
