Abstract

In response to concerns raised by several corporations, noticing a trend among their recent hires, New Mexico State University launched, in collaboration with other institutions, a program to develop a series of courses based on improving the Problem Solving skills of recent Computer Science (CS) undergraduates. The problem solving practice is integrated with another identified gap in the CS undergraduate program, knowledge of Linux tools and environments. A mini-semester curriculum has been developed and deployed in Fall 2017, as a pilot-course test run. Initial feedback has been positive and students have signaled an interest in this vein of courses.
