BS in Computer Science and Software Engineering should be bypassed for a
certificate course, says E. Millard.
So teaching Ada to CS Majors is not targeting the people who really design
the application.   Another reason to get an Ada Certification course

                      As a result of these and other IT changes, high-tech
workers may want to take
                      a few business and management courses to supplement
their technological
                      acumen, according to analysts.

                      One educational path that could be rocky is the
tried-and-true B.S. in computer
                      science. As Craig Symons, vice president of IT
management at Giga
                      Information Group, told NewsFactor: "A bachelor's
degree in computer science
                      would be overkill for most people. Computer science is
now really a major for
                      those who want to go into computer hardware or
software engineering."

                      Symons added that people who are interested in
creating applications would be
                      better off in either a certification program or a
business program with a focus on
                      information systems.
