Eesti keeles In English Background and History


In 1991 on initiative of Prof. Enn Tõugu and Prof. Jaan Penjam a conception of theoretical informatics curriculum was composed. This conception corresponded to a recently published education program Discipline of omputing of ACM and IEEE, composed by Joint Curriculum Task Force of the ACM and the Computer Society of the IEEE. Comparison of this conception with the subjects actually taught in Estonian universities showed that several essential domains are not being covered or are covered inadequately. Also it is a fact that teaching subjects related to informatics require availability of up-to-date equipment (computers and software). This lead to drawing the proposal for the CIDEC Project ("IT & CS Education Development Center for Estonian Universities").
