Computing and higher education in Peru
Abstract: In Peru, the computing discipline as an academic field has been neglected during decades deriving in a lowquality higher education system and consequently shaping an academic community with modest participation within scientific production around the world. At the undergraduate level, universities have not adopted international standards or curricula recommendations that could contribute to improve the quality of computing and related engineering programs. Considering this context, the present document aims to present an overview of the current situation followed by suggestions toward the empowering of the field following international well-adopted practices and respecting local characteristics. Categories and Subject Descriptors: K.3.2 [Computer and Information Science Education]: Curriculum; K.7 [The Computing Profession]: General General Terms: Standardization, Design
