Comparisons of More Applied Information Technology and Computer Science Undergraduates
This paper presents a comparison study between undergraduates in the areas of applied information technology and those in computer science. A large, nationwide survey involving undergraduates from 42 institutions of higher education was conducted in Fall 2004. Basic demographical data and responses to survey questions dealing with behaviors, beliefs, and perceptions were collected. Underpinning the investigation was the question of the influence of gender, ethnicity, and university type (Historically Black Colleges and Universities or Predominantly White Institutions). Responses to survey items were statistically analyzed and results are presented in this paper. A great deal of similarity was found between the two groups of undergraduates.
