This is part two of our series on how computer science education around the world is keeping pace with the increasingly pervasive nature of computing. Part one featured voices from two U.S. universities. Here in part two, Professor Andrew McGettrick from the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, Scotland, talks about the health of computer science as a competing academic discipline in the UK. He voices his concerns about falling enrollment numbers and talks about the challenges faced by computer science programs in engaging the students of today.
