Abstract

Early computing curricula in Norway were based on training courses in programming that were developed as computers were made available for research at universities and research institutes during the 1950’s. These developed into formal curricula starting from the mid-1960s. This developed differently at the different universities, which account for in the sequel. It describes the main points in the development of research profile and curricula for the four Norwegian universities.
