Computer Science is a young discipline. Many of today's Computer Science teachers have their disciplinary roots still elsewhere. Consequently, curricula differ dramatically, certainly between countries, and there is little if any agreement on what the fundaments of this discipline ought to be. Even if international organisations such as IFIP, IEEE, and ACM are putting considerable effort in developing curriculum guidelines, these do not rise above the tentative, and their application as well as their validity in different parts of the world is a matter of trial and error. An additional problem is the lack of international standards for establishing a specific educational level: "university" or "academic" turn out to allow for widely different interpretations and, consequently, levels of expected achievement.
