Academic computing programs often want to keep pace with technological changes by frequently updating their program contents. These program changes are often reactionary and lack uniform standards. Thus some of the changes are often rolled back and, as a result, face additional changes shortly after their implementation. A helpful strategy in computer program updates is to utilize a standard curriculum to gauge and benchmark the program. This paper compares the content of two technology programs with a standard curriculum developed by the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM) and other organizations including, AIS, AITP, IEEE and ABET-CAC. The paper examines the content of two technology programs: The T echnology Support and Training program (TST) at Eberly College of Business - Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP), and the Computer Information Systems (CIS) and Information Sciences (IS) programs in the School of Communications and Information Technology at Robert Morris University (RMU). It then compares the content of both programs with the Computing Curricula Information - Information T echnology Volume (IT2005) Body of Knowledge.
