For many years, computing professionals have enjoyed steady employment and good salaries. Throughout most of the career in computer science education, nearly all the graduates who wanted a job in computing, even those who were clearly weaker, could find suitable employment without really trying. However, the job prospects of college graduates with degrees in computing and information technology have recently dimmed significantly. By restructuring the curriculum to create an interdisciplinary program, smaller schools can maximize their graduates' prospects for employment as computing professionals and improve the faculty's prospects of competing for national funding in focused research areas.
