Emerging Trends In Computer Science
Sciences and Technology is a rapidly changing discipline. New issues, methods,
tools, applications and terminology appear on a continual basis. A key skill is
the ability to analyze new issues and assess new technologies within the
context of the information age. This course therefore prepares students to
understand the difference between potential technological failures and success,
fads and revolutionary technology. It also helps students to view emerging
issues as an opportunity rather than a threat. Intellectual tools are provided
to assist in understanding issues, assessing and forecasting technological
changes for feasibility and planning in real world situations.
course has been designed to provide students with:
process framework for analyzing new issues and a theoretical framework to study
technological and social impacts of such issues.
process framework for recognizing and understanding new technologies and a
theoretical framework to take advantage of such technologies.
to new issues and technologies.
ability to recognize the importance new issues and technologies in information
sciences and incorporate these new issues and technologies into an existing
information systems framework.
impacts of issues and technology on information management, users, policies,
and the environment.
