On Some Recent Problems in Computer Education in Engineering Studies
Education concerning computer tools for the future engineers is present at the universities for over 40 years and since every student of engineering faculties (not only computer engineering) obtains knowledge of computer applications and data processing tools. We are often asked why do we teach IT if the computer is commonly used and every student is well acknowledged with its applications. New problem arises as the students use computers, but do not understand its meaning in their future work. There is a gap between everyday thinking of computer application and real needs for the engineer. The aim of the presented analysis is to discuss how to fill this gap and prepare syllabus to gain students interest and present them with understanding of the tools they are about to use in their work.
