In December 2001 a meeting of interested parties from fifteen four-year IT programs from the US along with representatives from IEEE, ACM, and ABET (CITC-1) began work on the formalization of Information Technology as an accredited academic discipline. The effort has evolved into SIGITE, the ACM SIG for Information Technology Education. During this period three main efforts have proceeded in parallel: 1) Definition of accreditation standards for IT programs, 2) Creation of a model curriculum for fouryear IT programs, and 3) Description of the characteristics that distinguish IT programs from the sister disciplines in computing.
