The future of professionalising informatics: a university education perspective.

  In March 2015, the Shadbolt Review group was established in the UK to review course accreditation of computer science university courses. The Council of Professors and Heads of Computing is represented on the review group alongside industry, funding councils and the UK government. The aim of the review is to explore ways in which course accreditation might address the relatively high levels of unemployment
among computer science graduates. This paper considers the role of accreditation and the nature of professional bodies both in the UK and beyond in order to explore how the complex interactions between graduates, industry and universities can benefit the computer science discipline in Europe in the future.
