Abstract

In preparing computer science students for industry, degree content often focuses on technical skills such as programming. Whilst essential for a successful career in industry, employers note that students are often limited in transferable skills. Computing science students can also struggle to identify the value in these skills during their studies.The overall aim of this work is to develop a framework for computing science educators which will allow them to incorporate such skills more explicitly through assessment. This poster presents highlights from an initial review of graduate attributes from Russell Group Universities to identify common themes for further exploration.
