We can easily argue that all graduates of science and engineering degree programs should have the opportunity to develop good computing skills by the time they complete their studies. However, the depth and range of skills needed varies considerably-even in a single discipline such as physics. Moreover, the interests, backgrounds, and abilities of students taking physics courses vary widely, whereas the number of teachers with scientific computing skills is often limited. Providing appropriate courses for such diverse student groups is thus a challenge.
