ACM Issues Curricular Guidelines for IT Students Transferring between Two- and Four-Year Colleges

The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) recently issued the Information Technology Transfer Curricula 2020 (IT-Transfer2020) to guide two- and four-year Information Technology programs in implementing smooth transfer opportunities for IT students. The IT Transfer Task Group of distinguished educators from throughout the United States integrated related curricular guidance and industry input to develop IT-Transfer2020.

IT-Transfer2020 closely aligns with the Information Technology Curricula 2017: Curriculum Guidelines for Baccalaureate Degree Programs in Information Technology (IT2017) published by the ACM and the IEEE Computer Society (IEEE-CS) in 2017, and it complements the Information Technology Competency Model of Core Learning Outcomes and Assessment for Associate-Degree Curriculum (IT2yr2014) which the ACM CCECC released in 2014.


We are currently soliciting program examples, which correlate the courses in a degree or certificate at a given school with the competencies in the Cybersecurity Curricular Guidance for Associate-Degree Programs (Cyber2yr2020). Highlight your program by submitting a Program Examples for inclusion on our web site!

For an overview of Cyber2yr2020 watch the National CyberWatch Webcast on Cyber2yr2020 recorded on May 28, 2020.
