Abstract: After a review of the power of contemporary computers,
computer science is defined in several ways. The objectives
of computer science education are stated, and it is asserted
that in a U.S. university these will be achieved only through
a computer science department. The program at Stanford
University is reviewed as an example. The appendix includes
syllabi of Ph.D. qualifying examinations for Stanford's
Computer Science Department.
This is a revision of a previous Stanford Computer Science
Department report, CS 26.
