A panel of industry executives examines the challenges for Computer Science, Engineering and Technology (CSET) graduates in the era of globalization. The rapidly emerging global economy is profoundly affecting the employment patterns and the professional life of CSET graduates. CSET education faces significant challenges to prepare graduates for the working environment of the future. Articles in recent issues of the ASEE Prism and other CSET education literature suggest that current educational practices and policies are not sufficient for dealing with these changes. Successfully addressing these issues will require innovative solutions, including use of new pedagogies and technologies that improve student learning; partnerships among universities, industry, government, and K-12 educators; curriculum reform; and distance learning. This panel brings together leaders from industry to describe the attributes of graduates and the needs they must meet in order to remain competitive. In particular, they elaborate on the skill sets that they seek in their CSET graduates in order to retain their competitive position in the era of globalization
