The principle objective of this research was to establish what computing curricula are required for the Sub-Saharan Africa region. Input from academics, businessmen and the analyses of curricula from several African universities revealed a gap between existing curricula and what is considered to be ideal for this region. Required knowledge clusters were identified: Science and Technology; Soft and Research skills; Society and Development; Environment; Business and Entrepreneurship; Institutional; and Practical Skills. These were used to propose a model for enhancing the computing curricula of the Association of Computing Machinery and the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers’ for the SSA region.
