Abstract [en]

There is growing appreciation of the importance of understanding thestudent perspective in Higher Education (HE) at both institutional andinternational levels. This is particularly important in Science, Technology,Engineering and Mathematics subjects such as Computer Science (CS)and Engineering in which industry needs are high but so are studentdropout rates. An important factor to consider is the management ofstudents’initial expectations of university study and career. This paperreports on a study of CSfirst-year students’expectations across threeEuropean countries using qualitative data from student surveys andessays. Expectation is examined from both short-term (topics to bestudied) and long-term (career goals) perspectives. Tackling these issueswill help paint a picture of computing education through students’eyesand explore their vision of its and their role in society. It will also helpeducators prepare students more effectively for university study and toimprove the student experience.
