At SIAM CSE19, I presented a talk on a DOE Lab Perspective on CSE Education which included specific recommendations for graduate education. Several persons asked for the slides, which are available here.
As a preview, the recommendations are…
- Make side projects integral to the program
- Explicitly develop communication skills
- Require major programming project
- Encourage leadership and teaming
- Develop “soft skills” curriculum
