Future Directions on Computing Accreditation Commission (CAC): Associates, Masters and Emerging Technologies

In this session, participants will receive an update on the future directions of the Computing Accreditation Commission (CAC). Beginning with bachelor-level programs in computer science, over the years, the commission expanded to information systems, cyber security, information technology, and data science. In recent years, the CAC has added associate-level programs in Cyber Security. CAC is now proposing new criteria for associate-level programs in information technology and masters-level programs in computing. The commission is also seeking to update its criteria in emerging areas, including artificial intelligence and machine learning.
